It could be a worn CV joint but they are usually only noisy under power at full steering lock. You say the boot is loose, can you pull it back and see inside? If so, there's your problem.
If you just (400 mi) had the brakes done, it could be someone bent the brake splash shield on the back of the rotor. This could rub on the turning brake rotor.
Is your ABS working? There is a cog in that area that turns and provides a signal for the ABS. If it was rubbing, the ABS warning lamp would probably be on.
