Noise from rh brake

Recently I have noticed a noise coming from the right front brake. It doesn't do it if I am light on the brakes but during moderate to heavy braking, the noise pops up. I looked at the pads and they appear to have plenty of life left. The rotor on that side is different from the left due to a shop incident where they ended up replacing the right rotor after a screw up. The rotor was replaced about a year and a half ago. The noise is kind of like a rumbling sound and I can feel it. Not like a screech or a metal on metal sound. Is it possible I need to replace the caliper? Thanks very much everyone for your input.

sounds like maybe they gave you a second hand part and its warped it will make a noise and be feelable when braking.

So the wheel bearing could be related to my brake noise? A guy at my work suggested that but I am having trouble wrapping my head around the two being connected.

A bad wheel bearing can be heard and the feling can be transmitted through steering components. Also check for a dragging brake pad. This can occur if the slider pins in the caliper are not properly lubricated and the caliper piston is not fully releasing the pad.
