Just had my N/S/F inner CV joint done. Car is running great.... Then yesterday I noticed a new noise.

Grinding/scrapeing noise coming from the front... Not noticeable at higher speeds. It gets louder the slower you got. It is an uneven noise and the frequency is speed related. It goes away when you push the brakes. It does not get louder turning a corner.

I jacked the car up last night and noticed that the near side front wheel does not turn as freely as the offside...

Any ideas.

I think it could be warped disc, pad/calliper, dust shield.... Any ideas, I'm hoping not wheel bearing?

Warped discs arnt noisy, do you get a shudder through the pedal?

Wheel bearings usually grumble but fade up the more worn they are. Never heard of a bearing one day it's there noise

No shudder under braking mate, I'm gonna go inspect it properly in a bit, my money is on pad/calipper problem

Proberly a trapped stone on the pads or a sticking caliper, check this disc on front and back for scores that usually indicates weither you have anything wedged,
