Rubbing noise on front right, please help!

so i have recently got a 96 sonoma and there is a rubbing or grinding noise on the front passenger side around the wheel and i can hear it from inside the truck.
we have already replaced the wheel bearings in it and that was not the problem.
We thought it might had been somethin to do with the anti-lock brakes rubbing...has anyone encountered this problem or know what it would be and how to fix it?
thanks!

one thing you might want to check, make sure that the dust shield on the back of the rotor isnt rubbing against the rotor itself... if so just bend it back out a little just a thought thou man

Id say rocks between the rotor and dust shield... but if you changed the bearing that would have fallen out. I can't really thing of anything else right now, but I'm sure I'll think of somthing later that might be a culprit.

Is there a vibration? Is there any noticeable clean marks?

bit of vibration but sometimes it will randomly stop
me and dad thought part of the anti-lock brakes on the rotor might be rubbing somehow?

Well the ABS is on the inside of the rotor, its a reluctor wheel with a sensor on the dust shield, I'd say with random vibrations it sounds like wheel bearings but you replaced thoes already,maybe you didn't tighten the nut on the spindle enough?

If the ABS sensor was rubbing, the ABS light would have come on...Unless its missing.
I'm trying to think of what it could be but with out being able to hear it myself I'm at a loss.

This is going to sound weird, but bear with me. Have you checked to make sure your hood pivot bolt is tight?

I had a clunking noise that I swore was coming from the right front wheel/suspension. I could only hear it inside the cab. I replaced the shocks, wheel bearings, disassembled the dash looking for something loose and was about to replace the ball joints when I found this link


I followed that fix - tightened the hood pivot. 10 minutes later the clunk was completely gone and it's been gone for about 4 years now.

I didn't even replace the spring washer so it cost $0.
