You need to use disc quiet, NOT grease on the back of the pads. Grease is for the moving components, the rtv-like disc quiet is for the back of the pads. It essentially creates a rubber pad when dry, which is what absorbs the vibrations/frequencies that create squeal. Grease will do it for about a day until it heats up and drips /runs off.
So step 1 is if you used grease on the back of the pad, pull it apart, clean the backing area really well with degreaser and then apply the proper disc quiet. I usually put it on and let it setup for a few minutes before putting the pads back in.
On another note did you replace or resurface the rotors as well? Pad slaps have a habit of causing brake pulsations/vibrations and noise as the mating surfaces are not uniform.
