I have seen the brake hose collapse internally and prevent the fluid from leaving the caliper. Replace the hose.

Never never never do just 1 side on brakes it is not only your life you mess with but many others too . that brake is much tighter than the opposite side causing heat which will cause failure

Look at your brake hose and see if it drains like the opsite one.

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

SOURCE: 2004 grand am weird noise
Have you noticed if the noise changes while doing a swerve to the left or right ? If so , it is likely a wheel bearing & will require replacement of the entire hub .

SOURCE: weird noise in front of car
How would changing the rear pads fix a noise in the front? Take the front wheels off and look for excess rust on the discs or grit in or on the pads. It sounds like you might be competent enough to take the calipers off (it's not very hard). If the noise gets louder with speed, it could very well be the bearings. This is much harder to do yourself (yay FWD), and you might want to get it towed so you don't damage the hubs, etc. Just shaking the wheel probably isn't enough to diagnose bad bearings.

SOURCE: front wheel bearings bad
if it gets louder when you turn left then the right front wheel bearing is bad and vice versa it gets louder when the weight shifts to that wheel

Remove wheel, remove the two bolts in the calipers, pull up calipers,
remove pads compress caliper piston with a c-clamp, be sure to have the brake fluid cap off the reservoir under the hood. pull the rotor off and put the new one on. - replace pads and reverse the order.
