I recently worked on my suspension to lower it even more than before, but I hear this high-pitched screeching noise from my rear driver-side suspension intermittently.

It happens more often when I have a passenger in the passenger seat or when I run over a bump on the highway, and it only seem to occur when I'm NOT braking. The sound disappears when I get on the brakes, and stays quiet until I hit another bump or torn-up pavement.

I should also mention my rear brake pads are really thin and I'm replacing them and my rotors this weekend.

The possible reasons for the noise:
  1. thin brake pads
  2. the rotors are touching the dust shield (maybe the dust shield got bent when changing suspension)
  3. I'm rubbing with the fenders (except the noise is high pitched and I feel like it's metal on metal)

Anyone have any ideas?

I think the screech was was due to my wore brake pads. I will be driving to work tomorrow with a coworker, so I'll know for sure if it's the "low brake pads" indicator
