Ok 91 celica gt, replaced wheel bearings everything went fine. Had to take all the brake stuff off. all went back on well. and well when ever I turn either direction. one of the brakes rub on something. and its not constant its weer weer weer weer. sounds like the rotors rubbing the dust sheilds is what im thinking. Im just wondering if someone else had this problem before. Oh and the right brake weers when turning right and same for the left. but when turning left the right brake doesnt make any noise. same with the left. any ideas

Its a super easy fix, just bend the shield back by hand if its touching the rotor. Check both front.
Ive run into the same problem and just parked the car and bent it back, but i can get to my splash shield through the gaps between the spokes to my wheels. Its a horrible noise like really bad wheel bearings or metal to metal but its really not that bad. Hope thats what your brake noise is.
