    The car just recently started doing this. I initially thought it was the brakes but it is not. However, if you get on the brakes decently hard, the sound goes away. I think that is just due to the added pressure on the spindle assembly, don't think it is the brakes.

    Any help is appreciated!!

    Does it do anything strange while driving?

    Extra noises when hitting bumps?

    Any other info other than the noise.

    All it does is get quicker as I pick up speed. And goes away on heavy braking. Turning the wheel doesn't affect it and the ball joints were just replaced with x2s

    I would check the wheel bearing first. You should be able to tell exactly what it is once everything is apart.

    There's something between the rotor plate and the rotor? Or on your brake pads
