metal to metal noise from front end Sign In

I have a 2014 Cadillac SRX and there is a metal to metal noise coming out of the front end. I have replaced the rotors, brake pads and the wheel bearings were replaced about 6 months ago but, the noise is still there. I have taken the brakes apart several times to use a brake squeal lube on the pads, verified that the calipers aren't damaged and that the anti-rattle clips aren't touching the rotors but, I am still hearing the noise. I have noticed that when I turn the wheel to the left the noise stops then, when the wheel is straight or turning to the right the noise continues.

I have also replaced the brakes on the rear of the car but, based on where I hear the noise and the fact that turning the wheel does or doesn't stop the noise I believe it to be in the fronts brakes.

I am out of ideas as to where the noise may be coming from.Unsure

Have you checked to make sure the backing plates aren't rubbing on the rotors?

i would also check all of the hardware on the caliper brackets. sometimes they can shift or the aftermarket hardware kit might fit differently.
