+1... The left brake caliper is probably hitting the Bolts on the brake rotor. Easy fix:

1) Loosen Axle bolt.
2) Loosen all (4) pinch bolts.
3) Use (.020") shim to set gap, between left brake caliper (not the pad) and the brake rotor... or just verify Same Gap both sides of left caliper.
4) Tighten (2) pinch bolts on Left side.
5) Tighten Axle Bolt
6) Tighten (2) pinch bolts on Right side
