Noise that I thought was brake related...

So my neighbors F250 makes a noise like the brakes are digging into the rotor... It only does it when turning right and only every once and a while. Today we changed the rotors and pads but it still made the noise on the test drive after we finished up. I looked under it after we got back to the house and I noticed a good dent in his steering stabilizer. I'm debating on changing it next but I don't want to get into just chasing after the issue. His truck has 130K on it and no front end parts have been changed so I'm sure a lot could be done. Any other things to look at??? The truck is just a daily driver from an older couple so its had an easy life. I'm actually working on him to sell it to me, been for 2 years now...
Thanks!

I had a similar noise. I thought it might have been the brakes squeaking (constantly) but when I applied the pedal, it didn't make any difference. Get underneath and check out the driveshaft u-joints. Grab the shaft and jerk on it. Mine was wasted, I replaced all 3 u-joints, yolk straps, and the cv ball, which isn't on all trucks. It started out as a squeaking noise, then turned into a vibration, then a clunking feeling/noise. You might also check the exhaust, make sure everything is tight and in the hangers. I would also check all the wheel bearings and ball joints, jack up the truck and grab hold of the tire and see if it has any play. The steering stabilizer might be doing it, but not likely. Take if off then drive it. Might be a good time to replace it anyway, if it has never been changed before. Good luck.

Thanks for the info all. I'm thinking it is the hub bearings at this point too. I've looked at everything else I can see easily.

OK, it's only going o be needle brgs if the truck is 4WD. If it IS, manually lock the hub and the noise will go away IF it's coming from the needles.

You can also have Ball Joints that are So Bad that the caliper bracket will scrape the rotor (you'll see the marks ) and gives the same sound as the pads scraping will. I know you said the FE parts were replaced, but check 'em anyhow
