It sounds like 1 of these 2 problems.
I think its just bad timing that the shocks were recently done and I dont think it has anything to do with the shock replacement, but again, I cant hear noises over the computer, lol.
1. the brake pads are low or backing plate touching the rotor
when you have a noise that the disappears when you hit the brakes, it is ussually the indicator on the brakes that is just touching, and when you push the breaks it puts a different position on the pads which make the noise go away, this can also be the same for rust
2. wheel bearing
The reason it can disapear when hitting the brakes is the caliper will push on the rotor, repositioning the rotor away from what its rubbing on.
Either way, the wheel will have to be removed and visually inspected.
Hopefully its just a backing plate rubbing and just giving it a little push will have you on your way again!
IF you need any more help id h=be happy to assist!
