I have a 98 Duragno slt, 5.2 4wd. I recent replaced the front brake pads due to them being worn down. after I replaced them I noticed a slight rub on the passenger side. I took the pads back to the store thinking maybe they had given me the wrong ones. Even with the new, new pads, there still was a slight rub. I read some threads on here and ended up replacing the brake hoses, rotors, calipers, and re-greased the slide pins. The rubbing got a little better, but is still doing it when I coast between 5-15 mph, turn, or reverse. Does anyone have a solution to this? I love my Durango but it's driving me crazy, literally.

what does the rubbing feel/sound like?

Does the rotor turn freely?
Is it rubbing on the dust shield behind it?
If yes, then that is your noise and simply bend the shield back away from the rotor.

It just feels like the pads are lightly touching the rotor as at spins, almost like they are loose in the caliper.
The dust shield was gone before I bought the truck.
