Front end chirping/squealing... solved

If I had one more person tell me I needed front brakes...
I had my front axle isolator bushings replaced about a month ago. They dropped the axle to replace them. It's been cold here, so always have my windows up, impervious to most outside noises.
Co-workers started telling me I had squeaking/squealing coming from my front end, likely my brake wear sensors, they said. Even though I have my original pads/rotors, I knew my pads were at least 1/4"-3/8" on the front.
Pulled the front wheel off the drivers side, and the dust shield was bent in on the lower right corner and rubbing on the rotor on hard right turns, evidenced by a tell tale shiny spot on the shield surface. bent it out and away, noise is gone.
Also had a weird rattle/ tap sound in the back end about two weeks ago; went away after a bit. Removed the rear rotors and the parking brake pads fell on the ground in pieces (both wheels). So I replaced those as well. Good opportunity to re paint my calipers as well!
