    I had the needle bearing eliminated this afternoon, got rid of a cyclical humming vibration which I suspected had to do with the needle bearing, so that was good.
    All was great, drove home a little ways and went inside then got back in the truck to run an errand. After what seemed like warming up I heard an awful scraping noise but thought it was possibly coming from somewhere else. Parked, did my deal, truck cooled off. Got back in drove a little ways and there was that damn grinding noise again. Got it home and it's coming from this piece of pressed metal behind the front disc and it's scraping on the bottom of my rotor as it rotates. I can't seem to see how to fix this. Any ideas? Picture included with problem area circled although the contact is occurring more at the bottom.

    Get a flat head or pull it with your hands, obviously towards the engine side to it stops contacting the disk.

    happened to me once before.

    Just bend that shit out of the way, use a rubber mallet or channel locks or your foot. Good luck with your truck.

    Take your wheel off, spin the rotor see where it’s rubbing. Take a hammer beat the shit out of it to where it stops rubbing. Rinse and repeat
