Default NEED HELP! Metallic grinding sound when driving

Hello nasioc, i have an issue that i cannot figure out. I recently took off my coilovers and put on my stock struts for the winter. Well, the parts went back together fine and there were no problems until today. I was driving down the road and noticed this horrible noise. It was very faint, but sounded like a metallic scrapping sound coming from my passenger front wheel. At slow speeds, i can hear the noise clearer, but cannot distinguish the sound. It almost sounds like the wear indicator on my caliper. But im not sure because my rotors and pads are fairly new. Any help would be great! thanks!

Do you have stainless lines? Check and make sure they aren't rubbing on the wheel.....

I had the same issue with my car after driving with debris on the road from a storm. Turned out to he a dust shield went and snaked an arm in there and pulled on it on the side of the road and it went away.

Raise the front end up and spin the wheel... seems pretty easy.
