Thank you for the information. I will take off the tire this weekend and inspect it thoroughly for any rocks/tar/nails like you mentioned. I have new Powerslot rotors and Hawk Brake pads up front that were installed in July so I know its's not the brake pad low.
If it's the dust shield, how can I see this (pic possibly) and do I simply just bend it back with my hand?
It's probably nothing as serious as bearings or CV joints, but if it is how much would that be roughly to replace for the front drivers side if you know? Thanks a lot.
