The calipers on those have a little lug that has to go over the caliper bracket if you look close you will see what I mean.Also you need to keep the sliders held back from the bracket while installing the caliper.Tip: sometimes putting 2-3 lugnuts on finger tight to hold the rotor against the hub can be a blessing.

On my 99 Voyager, it was a common problem. Cheap pads would sound like they are grinding and squealing, just started to put middle of the road pads on and that cleared it up. These minis eat front brakes for lunch, so, keep the rears adjusted and that will help out the fronts.
