Default strange noise

So Amber is heading to the east coast for a few weeks, and driving the 80 with our 2 girls. Yes, she is crazy, but this is not about that. I am doing a ton of maintenance to prepare her 80 for the trip, and I am stuck figuring out a front end noise. At very low speeds, under 10mph, the front wheels make a light screeching scraping sound, almost like the brake pads are worn out, but I pulled both front wheels and the pads are good. Any clues as to what may be going on? Worst case, I can send her in my 80, but with bigger tires and a lift will cause worse gas mileage, and also means no wheeling for me while she is gone! (other than the 40's only run...)

Thanks all!

Timm
