Default HELP! Front Brake/Rotors Making Noise!

So I just did DRT slotted rotors and some Duralast Gold Pads, I know not the best but I'm on a budget -_-. I also did some ISC Coilovers idt that matters though. Anyway when i drive forward at about 5mph the front rotors are making a cyclic metal on metal rubbing noise. It kind of looks like something is pressing against the outter and inner edges of the rotor harder than the middle. I took it all apart but idk what it could be. Any suggestions?

Thanks Guys.

Check the backing plates. It's not uncommon to bend them a little when doing suspension work and then they rub on the rotor.

Yea I did hit one and bend it cause I snapped a bracket bolt and had to get it out, but would that cause it to rub on the front?

It is the metal plate behind the rotor. Bent it back or take it off. Simple as that.

Alright I will try this tommorow, any chance it could be the pins as well? Possibly try cleaning them out.

Gravedigging a bit here but did this fix your problem? I'm having a similar issue but it also happens sometimes when I hit the brakes. I thought it was my brakes but now that I see this I'm wondering if its that backing plate. It only happens sometimes when I brake which is why I don't think it's the brakes. Seems like it happens more when I'm turning at low speed too.
