Exclamation Weird (brake?) noise

Hello!

So a little while ago I did a brake job on my 2008 1500 Quad Cab Hemi. There is a whistling noise that I hear pretty clearly around 20-40+ miles per hour. At first I thought maybe the new pads and rotors were just breaking in, but it's been going on for 2 months now. This noise may have started before the brake job - maybe I'm just paying more attention because I replaced them for the first time.

I usually hear it if I'm driving next to something (car, wall, curb, etc) so I think its coming from around my wheels (brakes?). It is constant, and doesn't stop when I hit the brakes. There is no squealing or grinding, just this whistling sound. I took it in to one shop that said they looked at everything and re-lubed all the hardware, but couldn't find the problem (but I think they rushed it and didn't really try for some reason).

HELP!!!!!


Replaced all 4 pads with Hawk LTS Pads
Replaced all 4 rotors with EBC Sport Rotors (slotted and dimpled)
Replaced Front Hardware and Rear Hardware with Duralast brand
I also replaced both of my front calipers with Duralast rebuild ones(Because I'm an idiot - didn't notice one of the clamps had slipped off and popped the piston out too far, then gouged it... ugh)

Check the metal retainers that the pads sit on between the pad and the pad bracket. These metal clips could be rubbing on the rotors.

I checked them and they seemed to be fine, and then a brake shop checked and re-lubed everything and said that they look fine as well.
