    the dust sheld is not in the way and it only happens between 0-45 mph and goes away when i apply the brakes

    Are the brake pad wear indicators making contact with the rotor? This shouldn't be happening since the pads are new.

I have envoy brakes are realy noise

When you step on the brakes, the pads vibrate. It may be you didn't put the little gaskets, or anti-squall stuff on the BACK of the pads.
If your "kit" didn't include it, get some copper lube and apply to the back of the pads.
I know, means you have to pull the pads but it's either that or live with the noise.
Have fun:

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise

Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

Break noise when you press break

I am not sure what kind of noise you are talking about as you did not post it. Jack up the car. grab the wheel top and bottom and try to move it. do the same side to side. if it will go up and down you either have a bad bearing, or a bad ball joint-if it move side to side, you have a bad tie rod. Pull off the wheel. Check that the pads are still good. Grab the brake caliper and try to move it. if it moves-check that the tightness of the bolts that hold it to the A-frame. If the pads are not worn, and everything else is tight, what you are most likely hearing is the metal in the pads grinding against the rotors, or brake dust buildup.If it is a squealing noise, Using a air compressor with a blower tip, blow out the caliper. You may also(for large buildup of brake dust) get a can of break cleaner and spray off the rotor and caliper. If grinding(and the pads are good), It may also have lost the noise reduction pad behind the brake pad that reduces that noise. This will not hurt the vehicle, but if you want it fixed, you will have to replace the pads, and have the rotor turned at you local brake shop, machine shop, or parts store. Usually about $5-$10 per rotor.

I replaced my front btake(both) 6 month ago when driving loud noise coming from the fronti can feel the brade pad grinding against the rotor when I turn

If you Failed to Tighten Any 1 of the Caliper Floater BOLTS and it Has Fallen Out This Will Cause the Noise you Discribe. Remove the Wheel from the SIDE YOU SUSPECT the NOISE is Coming From and INSPECT the Caliper and Pads, If the Bolts ARE there and Tight Check the Brake PADS and If they are Worn DOWN to Metal The Problem Is LIKEKY the Caliper Has SIEZED UP and Needs REPLACED along With Brake PADS and ROTOR.

Brakes on 2003 nissan altima are wearing on one side only. has been repaired repeatedly. After a few thousand miles only one side works other side consquently wears out out fast &then there is a...

Sounds like the caliper on the side that isn't wearing is not working properly. You need to test it to make sure that it is pushing out properly when the brakes are pressed. I can't imagine that it is working correctly. It sounds like the piston isn't moving out and you need to look at replacing that caliper so that your brakes wear evenly and also to make sure you have your full stopping power. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

The front left brake on my 99 malibu grinds as i drive,and pulls to one side as i brake

Bad caliper, or you just need to rebuild your caliper. The grinding noise is likely caused from the pads being bad and the rivets are grinding on the rotor. I recommend if you are a handy person, rebuild the caliper, if not then buy a new one and replace it and bleed the brakes

Grinding noise when I pull off and clunking noise on bumps

Front hub bearing. If you were the one who replaced the pads you should have turned the hub while the caliper was off and checked for roughness or wobble. Imagine the rotor wandering from side to side and rubbing the pads; thats what a worn hub will do.
