Creaking sound emanates from the front passenger side when braking. Doesn't become apparent until 40 or so MPH as it corresponds to the velocity of the wheel. Approaching a stop, the creaking sound gets louder and "slower." Took the wheel off and there is decent pad left. Noticed there's a very slight ridge in the rotor - thought it was this until I found out it doesn't do it in reverse. Older threads talked about creaking being related to a sticky caliper - could this be it even though it doesn't happen in reverse?
