WTH is this noise (have audio)

Hey Everyone,

So I have heard this noise for about the past month or so and at first I would hear the noise on the driver side front when I was going in reverse and I would hit the brake. About 2 weeks ago I would hear the noise when I would turn to the left. This wouldn't happen on all turns but some and then I noticed when I would roll forward and hear the noise. I figured it had something to do with my brakes (or axle) b/c I had them done in November and I had never heard this noise before. I went back to the brake place this past week and told them what was going on. Come to find out when I thought they put new rotors and brakes on the front they did not and put new pads on the front and the new rotors on the back and they believed since my rotors were so low this noise must be the pad hitting the rotor. I asked why would it only be on the driver side and they said sometimes they can ware differently. I also asked them to check my axle b/c of the noise and they said my axle is fine. I am like ok whatever but they believed the issue was fixed. NOT it's still here and driving me crazy. Can anyone take a guess as to what it could be.

It wont let up upload an audio file is it possible? If no send me your email and I can email the file to you.

Thanks for the help
