1998 Chevrolet Cavalier rotors and or drums?

I have a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2l Auto. I'm sure my breaks are really bad. When I apply them at any speed it starts with a squeak and then a grinding sound. I'm sure I have damaged my rotors at this point. I read that the 1998 Chevy Cavalier has a few different sizes of drums and rotors. How would I go about finding the size equiped now? I will not be doing the repairs myself, but I did want to buy the items myself with out getting ripped off. Also what surprises sould I expect from this kinda of damage?

Lack of braking since new. Have tried best combo's of rotors, front disk brake pads & best rear drum shoes !


Bleed the breaks untill you get clean clear fluid out of each one. start with the right rear, left rear, right front, left front. DO NOT let the reservor get low while bleeding. You can suck air into the lines and have the same problem. You need to do this immediatly as your brakeing ability is uncertain and can be un reliable.

1998 cavalier, front brakes I just had new front brakes and rotors. They asked to install Control arm bushings and lower control arm bushing. I declined. Now the car pulls to the left when I brake. Why?...


I would say your brake work wasn't done correctly,wouldn't you

Did it pull with the old brakes? Doubt it

Control Arm Bushings -- I would resolve the brake issues
first & need a really good reason to do the control arm bushings

What would make the car pulsate when breaking while the brakes and rotors appear good.


Normally this is caused by uneven rotors or drums, replacing brakes and not resurfacing drums

or rotors, or replacing drums or rotors, old brake fluid in system, not flushing out lines, dirty

brake fluid causing brake calipers to hang-up. inproperly installed brakes, not torqueing down

the bolts, loose bolts. good luck!

My 2002 chevrolet 4wheel drive makes a noise alot like that of a break rubbing.It stops as the speed increases, I changed all four brakes and rotors and also changed the universal at the rear end. what...


Make sure backing plates behind front & rear rotors aren't rubbing on rotors. Jack up each wheel individualy & spin. May also be emergency brake shoes rubbing inside drum inside rear rotors.

I have a squeak in my left back tire whenever I turn left. I thought at first it only did it when I applied the brakes, but it happens whenever I turn left.


You need to clean the rust off of the drums or rotors. It may be wise to have them turned. Make sure you have good quality brake parts. Cheap ones will always rust & cause this problem you have with noise. Good luck!

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
