95 GMC Safari AWD frontend noise

My 95 Safari van has a high pitch rattle sound on the left front that you can only hear when the van is moving it starts as soon as you let off the break and starts and continues with a higher pitch the faster you go.
Never heard this before...

Sounds like the brake pads is still slightly making contact with the rotor. Replace pads and / or rotor.

Could be that the pads are wore out and are just scraping the rotor. Definately replace pads AND rotor.

Could be that the pads have broken their clips and are flopping around.

Could be a rock stuck in the overall brake assembly.

You have broken the suspension on your Safari. Or it is the axle. If you look under there you will see what is wrong with it.

I have 2004 GMC Safari Van. I am hearing a loud rattling noise under the van. someone is telling me that it is a heat shield and others are telling me that it's my catalytic converter going. I do I find...

If you drive on gravel roads it may be gravel inside the shell,covering the converter this is the heat shield,or it may be loose and vibrating.Check fot any of the exhaust grounding out against the frameworks. If you have or can barrow a rubber mallot use it to beat on the converter pipe close to the converter ,you may find the noise related problem,look for loose hangers or clamps.
