Check to make sure your brake pads are on correctly and calipers and bolted on securely.

The brake pads(inboard,towards engine) have those cheesy spring clips that slip inside the piston, well those dont hold very well.
The pad (passanger side most likely,due to left turn)may be flopping against the rotor and making noise until you apply pressure to the brakes.

I would take the calipers back off ,clean the metal sufaces on the pads that touch the caliper,
apply CRC DISK BRAKE QUITE(parts store should have it) to inboard and outboard brake pads ,this will basically glue the pads to the caliper.

Make sure the mounting bolts for the caliper move freely in there little rubber sleeves, I put a dab of grease on mine,that way the caliper will move easily as the pads wear.

Also check for loose wheel bearings,and balljoints .

When you apply the brakes and the sound stops the brakes are either moving something or tightening something up,it probably isn't tires or wheels rubbing anything but double check before you take it apart.

we need more info. get under the thing and look again for rubbing components, sway bar is a good starting point. Stoney, i doubt it would be rearend, after a drop? it would have been doing this before. Also on right turns as well. It could be wheel bearings you know. I s it like a roaring sound?

i had a noise after i lowered mine in the front. it ended up being the brake shield rubbing on the rotor.
simple fix, just bend it back if that's it of course

good point on the brake dust shield, its so easily bent and is a painfully annoying noise.

while yall put your money on brakes, i put mine on it being the balljoints. what does the sound sound like? like a power steering pump low/no fluid? whining? it could possibily be the balljoints, as they knock those apart when installing coils (not sure if you did it yourself, but if you did, you know what i mean). stock ones are riveted in, non greasbale. just my guess.

not likeley since he said rubbing sound. When I dropped my 01 and threw on r/t rims it rubbed the sway bar on left turns. you have to get inner mounted tyre weights to avoid this. Thats it. look at the sway bar. Where have you been guy? Ive been keeping track of this for days!

it was the brake pads as terry had suggested i had them apart about4 days ago cleaned them and used the crc brake quiet which basically glues the pad to the caliper and the noise has not come back..... i think the pad was hitting on the rotor ..... im keepin my fingers crossed

thanks for everyones insight and help

Brakes are a real problem on these vehicles apparently. Those pins inside the pistons get loose and cause a rattle. At any rate, a rebuild or adjustment and cleaning should be on the yearly to do list.

I have the same exact issue to the T! I
have replaced right wheel bearing, both
calipers, re filled my steering fluid (it
was low.) Replaced both lower sway bar
assy.( one was broke.) Still no relief!
So,it really sounds so much like the tire
rubbing it ain't funny! I am going to try
the brake compound tomorrow. Hey the guy
with this issue, how has it been since you
did this? Was it a success? Thanks yall
