1994 Pick up. Came into the shop needing brakes

1994 Pick up. Came into the shop needing brakes and front end parts. After the repair was done, it made a noise at low speeds as if something was rubbing. It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing noise however that was replaced during the brake job. Wheel bearing noise would constantly do it but this noise is intermittent. Nothing was damage during the install of the parts. What could this noise be.

Yes it could be your wheel bearings but it also could be the pins that hold your brake pads in. The pins need to be well lubercated to allow the pads to move freely on them. the wheel bearing might be miss adjusted or have some thing in them causing the noise. i would first check the caliper make sure the pads are not draging on the rotor at all. make sure the pads do not have rocks or dirt stuck in them. The problem is most likely to be with your brakes or even your dust cover for your front rotors. make sure the dust cover is not bent where it is touching the rotors.

My 2003 buick rendezvous started making clunking noise in front end when I backed out of driveway now it's making it all the time and brakes peddle got soft when problem started can anyone help me

Take the vehicle to a tire shop and ask them to inspect the brakes and front end for worn broken parts, DO NOT DRIVE THIS UNTIL THAT INSPECTION IS DONE. In most cases this inspection is free, call around.

The front suspension needs a lot of work. There is a lot of noises coming from the front end. My understanding is that this is common for a cobalt.

brakes and rotors will not cause noise unless they are badly worn and this will be evident on inspection
most noise will be from rubber suspension bushes and sway bar and shocky rubbers
I would suggest that you get quotes from suspension accredited shops and have each shop show you what is worn and what is ok
ON good roads ( hard surface) suspension units should last 60.000 miles before requiring repairs ( barring road damage)

1997n saturn sl1 front brakes didnt need replaced but back brakes were replaced. horrendous scrubbing noise still there- no leaks from brake fluid, are there issues with master cylinder??

Take it to another repair shop and tell them to look at the front end and figure out what is wrong. There are no mechanical parts in the master cylinder which would make a scrubbing noise. If the front pads are good, you could still have a caliper or bearing problem.

Front end on passenger side "pops" when starting to accelerate after braking. '94 Dakota

Sounds like a bad bushing. Could be the brake strut rods (going from the lower control arm near the tires, up to the front of the frame near the radiator, the bushing is at the front. Or could be bushings on one or both of the control arms.Or it could be as simple as the wheel alignment shims have fallen out.

Best bet is to raise the front end on jackstands and carefully compare left and right sides, looking for any differences in rubber bushings or such where each suspension member attaches to the frame. If it is NOT the control arm that attaches to the coil spring, you can, if you have the tools and the ambition, remove the control arm yourself. The bushings are pressed in, so you can take the control arm to a machine shop (ask your auto parts store where to go) and have them press the new bushings in. You really should do both sides (left and right control arms) at the same time. You will need to get an alignment when you are done.

If you don't have the tools, knowledge, and ambition to do this yourself (it is not terribly complicated but it is difficult, and you have to have the right tools) then take it to a trustworthy repair shop. It's been years since I've had this done, but I'd guess it will cost around $300 for a shop to fix.

I had a bad vibration whenever i would apply the brakes so i thought it was the front rotors. well i took it to a repair shop and they told me the rear drums and shoes needed replaced and also the front...

That sounds high to me but this is the kind of thing that dose not have to go to a dealer. Shop around for a better price. Check with independent brake and muffler shops. Do this by just calling them and asking what it would cost to have the following work done; front rotors machined, new front pads, rear drums and rear brakes. To be on the safe side also ask about the price to replace the front rotors as sometimes you have to replace them too if they are too far gone’ worn, gouged or warped. Make sure you are comparing the same work at each shop and also get information about the warranty (many places offer life time parts but may gouge your on labor when you come back). Once you have the shops rated by price and warranty go the one of your choice and have them give you a brake inspection and tell you want needs to be done. You don't want to be the one telling them what needs to be done unless you are 100% sure of the needed work. If there are big differences in prices for the work on the front and the back between shops you can have one shop do the front and the other do the rear brakes Depends how much effort you want to invest in gathering prices. Just be sure the shop tells you want needs to be done. By the way, the vibration that was your original problem is most likely warped front brake rotors.

Need 2 change brakes on 94 cadillac deville

Brakes are something that most drivers should not attempt mostly because when you step ,on the brakes you want to stop. You don't say if you have caiper brakes all around or just on the front. I have worked on brakejobs for quite a few years and always do the calipers too. repairs are expensive nowadays as with most repair shops. most shops charge one for things that they don't change so it is expensive. To do a brake job properly one needs specialized tools and know how.

Front Brake repair

im sure you can . jst depends on how bad they are. many times you can get by with just replacing pads ($45) may need your rotors turned($40)or if they are realy bad replace the rotors ($40each) just need to know how bad. alot of these shops are part repacers not mechanics.
