Default 1997 OBS grinding/scraping noises

Hello everyone. I am hoping someone could help me out. I have a distinct sound coming from my engine bay. It sounds like the brake dust shield scraping on the rotors, however, I've checked and there is enough clearance between the brake dust shield and rotors. I also replaced both front wheel bearings and driver's side axle. Its driving me nuts. Any idea on what it could be?

Rock stuck behind one of the dust shields?

No. I checked both sides and there was nothing.

It may help if you provide more details as to when the sound is made and when the sound is not made. Turning, braking, slowing down, speeding up, hitting bumps etc...

It might be one of the rear wheel bearings. You can get that scraping sound from the engine bay from a rear bearing starting to fail. I'd start there.

The sound occurs once the car is moving and goes away when stopped. It gets louder when accelerating and is still present when coasting. Tapping on the brakes doesn't help. I feel like it might be a bearing of son sort. Possibly the center diff?

Have you checked to make sure the calipers are not scraping the inside of the rims?
