strange noise #1636456

Hello.
I ask for some advice about a problem.
My coupe makes a noise that comes from the front wheel (belt side).
The sound is a dull, vibrant sound.
Not sharp.
I could not identify the noise as metallic or not.
It almost seems like a sound of metal-hardened rubber, I don't know.
I know it's difficult to help me out, maybe there's something, some support on that side that could make this noise.
Works previously carried out;
Replacing shock absorbers (coilover) + dome support (bravo).
4 Spacers (2cm per wheel).
Last year various bushing elements have been changed etc.
But I'm not sure which ones.
The car emits noise especially when it comes out in reverse and after normal walking (low speeds).
No noise can be heard on the bumps / holes.
The factor that amazes me is that after about 10 minutes of driving as soon as the car is a bit warm the noise vanishes.
Already tried to grease the stem of the shock absorber and the springs, no result.
I cannot identify the exact origin.
Thanks.

Have you checked if the wheel arch liner has dropped and it's rubbing the tyre?


Thanks again, Photobucket.

Already checked, all right.
The strangeness is that as soon as the car heats up the noise gets muffled and then disappears.

Today I made videos but I can't catch the noise.
And a frequency too low.
I do not know how to do.

Does it make the noise while driving/moving only, or also when stationary? Are all the engine mounts and drive shafts in good condition?
Having a cracked exhaust manifold would explain the loss of noise when hot.

Today or swinging with force
The engine with your hands.
Moving back and forth no noise.
Up and down you can hear the noise.
You can clearly hear it coming from the suspension columns.
Can only 1 side make noise?
And then disappear with heat?
The engine mounts and the drive shafts can't say anything, I have no idea their conditions I'm sorry.
