Hey guys, quick question. I've been having this problem for a while now and can't seem to pinpoint what's causing it. So basically it only happens when I've driven the car for a while and warmed up, or when I'm soft braking at low speeds, like in a parking lot or something, but it doesn't occur during normal braking. It also comes out when I'm entering a dip of some sort, like a parking lot or something. Has anyone ever had this issue before? Wheel hub bearing? Bad strut mount?

If it does it in hard low speed cornering, I'd vote wheel bearing. It'll sound like a scraping noise intermittently
I thought it would've been the wheel bearing too. I ended up installing new rotors and pads today, and I made sure everything was secure and tight. The wheel bearings seem to be in good condition. I think I ended up fixing the problem. There was actually something lodged in the brake pad, like a rock or something. No clue why I did not see this before. Also, the brake shims seem to be a different size? I'm not sure how it got that way, but the left side had equal shims. Replaced all brake hardware and so far so good. I think that fixed the problem. Thanks for the reply again bro, you're always here to help I appreciate that.
