problem solved...

The backing plate was touching the rotor of the front left while doing a tight right turn.

This car is a daily driver that just had rotors and brakes installed in December 2018.
This car has had this issue on two of the four wheels over the last 18 months.
...the cause could be anything...



My two other Solstice have not had this issue.
