SOURCE: Ford Expedition rear brake brake replacement

The rear pads are usualy harder than the front and the harder the pads the more wear there is on the rotors Unless the rotors were worn to the point of replacement they could have had them skimmed.Being soft doesnt make much sense.Have an 03 ba falcon and only replaced our rotors after doing 125000ks The expidition is a similar beast that used the same brake system.Get the rotors skimmed and go to a slightly softer pad to extend rotor life

SOURCE: need rear brake pad and rotor replacement

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: I am hearing a squealing sound usually when braking.

sounds like a wheeel bearing ..very common on this vehicle .or it may very well just be the splash plate behind the rotor rubbing against the rotor this is also common get on the ground ,using maby a length of cardboard so not to get real dirty and look to see if the splash guard is really rubbing if so bend it back out to correct the issue ..if not lift the vehicle off the groung and try moving the wheel from side to side and top to bottom wiggle it is there a lot of play ir is it tight if loose it will most likely be the wheel bearing going bad as well whomever replaced the brakes should have checked this out for youi if you described the problem to them

SOURCE: Pulsating Brakes

The most common cause of brake pulse is wheel bearings, because the rotor wobbles.
The way to tell is that you will also feel it through the steering wheel, when not applying brakes.
If the rotor wobbles, it will also make the brakes spongey, because the wobble will cause some piston retraction, causing a longer throw when applying.
It is usually the fronts that go bad before the back. And one side before the other, often because a bad seal allowed water in. But you can tell by jacking up and feeling for play.

If not a wheel bearing, then I would consider ABS problem, or the rotor was installed wrong.

I suggest you take it to someone who knows what they are doing. This is a safety issue and could cause an accident. When the brakes need to be bled, this means there is air trapped in the fluid lines. Usually this will make the pedal feel mushy when it is depressed. It would not make grinding noise because of air in the lines. sometimes the dust shied gets bent and drags on the rotors. Anytime there is grinding noise you need to get it checked out right away.

I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 and it is making an awful noise. It started out as a squealing noise just about a week ago. Then it went to grinding and now it is this very loud breaking sort of noise....


It sounds like its your front brake pads are worn out and you are getting metal on metal from the pad to the rotor . Take a look at the front rotors you don't have to remove the wheel . If you can see groves in the rotors this is what is happening . You could also get your hand in and heel the surface's of the rotors if you can't see to feel for groves but be careful you don't put your fingers in to soon after driving it because it will be vary hot It realy sounds like you need a brake job

sounds like your brake pads are worn out depending ondamage to the brake rotors will depend on the cost. if you are lucky you will have to only replace the pads. if the discs are gouged out then you will have to either machine them flat again or buy new rotors also.

Squealing or clicking sound and then next day grinding sound louder when you take foot off accelerator clicking sounds from right side grinding underneath 2002 grand cherokee


Squealing usually indicates that the brakes are in need of replacement. There is a small piece of metal that as the brake pads wear comes in contact with the metal rotor. When the pads get close to being worn away the tab touches the rotor and it squeals. The tab can also click.
When the pads are worn away completely the metal backing comes in contact with the rotor and it grinds. Grinding is bad. It means the car's brakes are metal to metal. This will cause damage to the rotors resulting in an even more costly brake job.
You should have it taken care of ASAP.
I hope this helps.

I changed the pads and roters and i still have a noise like the brake is grinding


How many miles do you have on the Olds? Many people assume just changing the pads on the high miles car and not having the rotors turn its not good idea. Don't get me wrong, it will work and do what its suppose to although if its was me I would have it done. If you were able to replace your pads then you should also be able to take the rotors off. It doesn't cost much to have the rotor turn and its worth having it done knowing that would cured your squealing or grinding problems and also it will make your brake pad last allot longer better stoping and reduce any vibration as long as your rotors is not warp. Since you still feel and hear the brake still grinding it does not sound right. What type of pad did you installed? I hope you did not installed a pad call "life time guaranteed" which its simi metallic pad and it will grind your rotors down to nothing. I called it steel pad and that is what is made off. What you need to do is get the car going at the high speed like 65 mph on the back road some where and apply heavy breaking come to a complete stop, NOTE: unless you have ABS "Do Not Lock the Brakes Up". do this couple of times this will break the pads in and that should solved some of your problems. If you getting smoke comming out from your pad its fine..
