Exclamation Weird wheel issue

I need some ideas today on the way home from about 100 mile drive I got a weird rattle noise in the drivers front wheel. Ball Joints are new about 5000 miles ago. The said the wheel bearing was good to go then yet. But if you jack up that side and give it the shake test its fine. If you spin the wheel with it in the air you get the rattle noise.

What could it be Sway bar Link. Wheel bearing? Any ideas

Thanks

is the caliper draging of the rotor?? if you hit the brake and it goes away I would suspect brakes. maybe the caliper isnt sliding back after hitting the brakes.
