Are you sure the problem isn't your parking brake shoes? Can you spin the hub when it is all the way on the hub without the caliper attached?

Is it doing with the caliper bracket on there, or is it occurring only when the caliper is on with the bracket?

the rotor will spin up to the point when i tighten the 2 caliper bolts, it spins when the pad bracket and the pads are in place, as soon as i tighten the caliper bolts it wont spin , slack of the bolts and i can spin the rotor again, i never touched the parking brake adjuster. also the hub spins freely with or without the rotor on.

I had the same problem after changing the rotors, pads and caliper on my wife's Saturn Vue... turned out to be the faulty brake hose that connects to the caliper

there seems to be a lot of clearence on the inside disk , the one next to the caliper piston but the outside disk is tight to the rotor,and when tighten bolts it gets even tighter and binds the rotor, when i tighten it all down i can still get a screwdriver between the inside disk and the piston, but the rotor won't spin

If I remember correctly, the caliper bolt, one has a rubber bushing and one does not. Make sure you get them in the right holes.

I didn't think it would make a difference but i did it the same as the other side that worked fine. I put the wear indicator on the outboard.

I don't remember off the top of my head, but the rear calipers slide in and out on pins right? Maybe lube the pins up so they slide in and out better?

That's the problem. I was able to get both of the pins out and put some brake lube on them hoping that would fix the problem. It's not until i tighten those two bolts back up the rotor will not spin. I am thinking to replace the caliper?

Might be the best option. How did the pins look?

One was fine. The other was very rusted over and had a hard time getting it out.

The pins for my f-body calipers were like that too when I got them, I wire brushed the rust off and cleaned out the holes with some brake cleaner, and then re-greased them and they've been good for the last 15k miles.
