hey guys, you know when you have a bad bearing or rotor what it sounds like? I swore I had a either bad bearing or rotor so I went ahead and changed both front bearings, rotors and brakes. After that, I STILL have the scoring sound!? What else could it be?

And the dust shields are secure?

How often do you drive the car? What is the weather like? Could be just a little rust on the rotors. Does it go away after you drive?

there are no dust shields. it's a sealed bearing, the rotor mounts right on that. when I spin the wheel off the ground, there is no noise.

brand new rotors. just put them on and drove the car... when the car is off the ground, I spin the wheels, no noise.

I should have lifted the car and spun the wheels first before buying all the parts but I was so certain it was either rotors or bearings, I replaced them all.

Yeh means the metal dust shield on the brakes, like tin sheet if not aligned it can catch the disc. I had this last year after I had overhauled the discs, it's a fine line between scrape or not I found.
With the wheels off the ground it just might be enough to stop the noise.

there are no dust shields on this car brakes, rotors and bearings are new. I just put them on and on the test drive, the noise was still there. I'm wondering if its something to do with the driveshaft bearing now.
