Why new brakes has noise?
First time I did brakes myself, I changed the front rotors pads and wheel bearings. First time I tightened the spindle nut and damaged the bearings in the process. Then the noise started, I changed the bearings and the race with the noise still there when brake pedal is released and vehicle load on the wheels the noise happens, like tin hitting something (cling).
is it possible I damaged the spindle when I tightened the bearings. Also a second noise of scrapping on the front passenger wheel, at all speeds, the faster I go the faster the scapping. Possible rotor wobbles or dust shield bent?

Check to see if something is lodged between rotor and backing plate
