Default Brake get extremely hot after brake pads installed

I decided to change my brake pads after I installed new bearing and shocks. l drove for 2 days, the 2nd day I notice a brake odor from the front rims (both sides) were extremely hot after driving about 10 miles. I was told it was the brake calipers so I installed calipers on both sides. I test drove the vehicle and it's still getting extremely hot to the point I can't hold my hand on the rims for 3 seconds. I don't know whats going on. Need some help.

Did you bleed the brakes after instilling the new calipers? Rims will be very hot if you drive a vehicle.
