Passenger side front brake grinds occasionally while stopping. Doesn't seem to matter hot or cold outside, but it is more likely to do this after being driven 5 miles. I have replaced the pads and rotors up front, and no change. Could it be a bad caliper, or wheel hub assembly? There are no howling noises while driving, no pulling to one side or the other. Ideas?

As far as replacement of the brake pads and rotors, that should have stopped it. Since it hasn't, first make sure things like bushings and steering components are tight and in good condition. Also, see if there is excessive play in the right front axle or CV joints. Since there is no bearing noise, it shouldn't be an issue with the bearing, but one can never tell for sure.
