Possible splash guard has come loose and rubbing against the tire or the coil spring has cracked and the front should visibly be lower on that side. Lastly, check the brake pads and rotor on that side for unusual wear. It could be a brake caliper starting to fail or the slider pins in it are freezing in the extended position.
