If the resistance is there, it is a wheel bearing.
If the resistance is NOT there, but comes BACK when he puts the pads back in, then it is the brakes.
Simple process of elimination.
Make them fix it.
Tell them you don't feel safe driving the car "because if it is a dragging brake pad, it can boil the brake fluid" and when you go to jam on the brakes you have no brakes at all.
If you make them think you are concerned for safety reasons, they HAVE to address the problem or it is a liability issue for them.

Or, they could simply decline all warranty repairs and liability due to the extensive modification to the suspension and brakes.

I reread the whole thread and I do not see anywhere that he said he modified the brakes.

Tcoat spotted they are red, so some sort of "modification" was done

Look at the pic. Could be only paint but still enough for them to hang their hat on if they wanted to deny. If a wheel bearing they could argue the drop. Not saying it is right or that they would just that they could try!

Did you explain to the tech what you were observing with the front wheel .. ??

Did the tech at the dealership spin the wheel while the car was on the lift .. ??

If so, did he feel any difference in the two front wheels ... ??

I'm suspecting there is a Paul Harvey type "rest of the story" to be told.

If so, @tehpepsi ...... out with it......

Maybe something to do with the brakes ...... ??

@justatroll @VIP BRZ @humfrz @roddy @Tcoat
Caliper are just paint, no modification at all and suspension was done where I work by a suspension specialist, I paint the caliper at the same time he did the suspension and grease my pad like 10 000km ago. Next week I will make the elimination process to see where the problem come from and them going back to a other dealer to get the problem fix, and I will record the whole thing just to be sure they don't tell me there no problem again. if they refuse I will directly make a complain to toyota!
Thanks for your comments guys! I will keep you udpate
