I don't use new rotors with new pads. I wait until the rotor is too thin before replacing them. Minimum thickness will be stamped on them somewhere.

The guide pins defiantly need lubed, and some also need lubed at the contact points of the pads where they ride in the caliper bracket. My Accent does.

On my Accent the boots for the pins lock into the caliper bracket. They need to fit tight and it takes a bit of effort to push the bracket end of the boot into the locking groove. I use a flat blade screw driver.

When you are done you should be able to pull on the pin and the boot does not pull away from the bracket.
