My brakes (or something down there) grind when I brake - but only when moving forward - not in reverse. It is not a constant grind, but on-off-on-off as tho' the pads have a high spot. I replaced pads and rotors w/ quality parts. I believe calipers are working properly (because not constant grind, nor in when reveres). My thought is wheel bearings and/or CV joints? Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the donation.

It should not be from the CV joints or wheel bearings. I would suggest checking the rotors for any uneveness or dents.

Check if the backing/cooling plates are too near the rotors.
