Help! Weird noise on left side of truck!

Hey guys
I have a 2000 F-250 and i have a weird sound coming from the front left wheel area. My break pads were just replaced and now i have a problem. the breaks work great but the sound im hearin almost sounds like axle problems. It seems every rotation of the tire it makes a rubbin sound. i can feel it on the floor board of the truck. anyone in the passenger can feel it to. i think its vibrating across the truck. i saw that my ceals on the axle are really loose but i think its been like that for a while. i just recently replaced the torque converter 1200 miles ago. i still havent replaced the tranny fluid(which needs to be done) and i changed the front and back differential fluid yesterday. my dad replaced my break pads on the front left, where i think the problem is, and he says check the clip on the pads....? i am not for sure if thats the problem but if anyone could give me any ideas what it could be, it would be greatly appreciated. if i cant fix it or its too expensive, i might have to sell it and i deffinately dont want to do that. thanks guys

Austyn

Take the wheel off and turn the rotor by hand and see if it sounds like the rotor is rubbing the backing plate.

well i took the tire off, but it sounded almost like it was rubbin on the brand new break pads that were put on. the rotor also looks a lil warped when i spin it. but i dont think that a warped rotor would make that sound. im no expert tho. thanks

Check your wheel bearings.

Sounds like wheel bearings to me. Mine sounded like that and it was the wheel bearings. I replaced them (pass side) immediately and three weeks later the pass side wheel locked up with no warning. Manufacturer(bearing assembly) gave me a new one. Still didn't cover the tow bill though.

make sure that the rods that the pads slid on are cleaned and greased cause i have found on super duty breaks if those arent free it can screw up alot of stuff and make all kindas of noises
