SOURCE: my 96 ls400 suspension noise

front lower ball joints are possible cause, they wear out and start all kinds of noises, uppers are also suspect, either the ball joint or the control arm bushings. Did you put the anti squeek shims behind the pads?

SOURCE: crunch on brake application

not all cars but some do when you take off the rotor itself there is little brake pads just inside this is how your emergency brakes work and if you have this then this is probably why you are having the crunching noice because one of the pads is cracked inside

SOURCE: front right wheel bearing and break pads

Nope. 90% chance its your caliper pins. the caliper is required to float. When you remover the caliper by the two pins or whatever your application they require lube. if one is bent or seized the caliper wont float, the pads or pad will continue to wear because the caliper wont return to "neutral" location when the piston no longer has pressure on it. locate these pins and lubricate them with a graphite grease or something like lubriplate or similar. if the pins are bent remove them and replace. they're pretty cheap. good luck

SOURCE: Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla

you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help

When I make a left turn only, and break, it sounds like something is rubbing or grinding. If I turn left without breaking, I don't hear anything. No noises when turning right or braking while driv


If the problem is as bad as it sounds, you may be close to parking it until fixed.
Normally, if you turn left, your are "loading" the right side, and visa-versa.
Think of it this way.
Picture a car going fast around a turn. The wheel on the inside of the turn might actually lift off of the ground, it is "unloaded".
With that thought in mind, look closely at the right front wheel. Start with the brake pads and /or rotor ( what the brake pads rub on to stop the car.)
Check the rotor inside and out. A good flashlight will do.
Pull the right front wheel and see if the pads are worn out or the rotor is no longer smooth, but "torn up" on the inside or the outside.
If the pads and the rotor is fine, next look at the wheel bearings.
This will be a bigger problem, probably a shop needs to check this out.

Loud knocking noise from front right axle


YOU replaced the driveshaft ... or did you pay somebody else to replace it? Are you sure it was actually replaced?

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

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

Front brakes squeak


Pads may be acting as phonograph needles and "playing back" the cut pattern on the rotors. To eliminate this tendency most dealerships now use a DA sander on the rotor faces while the rotors are still turning on the lathe, to break the pattern, making it non directional. (I've been doing this on all vehicles since the 70's)
If this was not done, they will make noise. Sometimes sound deadening inserts can be placed behind pads or a liquid made for this purpose can be applied to backings. But, the first method is generally the best. Other than that, if the pads are not binding or wearing prematurely, there should be no noise.

I have a 2002 Nissan Quest and the rear brakes are making grinding and squeaking noises while braking. The rear brakes were replaced a month ago and since then it's been making those noises. I have read...


Make sure the rotors (the disks that the tire rim are mounted on), are smooth. If they are rough, then they are wearing your break pads down. Even if the break pads are new, bad rotors will grind them down. Change the rotors...

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.

Breaks meaking load noises


Did you turn the rotors when you replaced the pads? if the rotors are not turned they will squall. Also you should have used some break quiet on the back of the pads you can get it at the parts store

FRONT LEFT SIDE BRAKE NOISE & BINDING


It may be caused by Disc Thickness Variation, which occurs when the pads brush the sides of an out of alignment rotor. Also, it could be that the rotors need to be resurfaced due to poor surface finish. I have also seen that when the brakes drag on the pads (DTV) that any pad dust will collect in the low spots and squeal after braking. I would recommend dropping the calipers and thoroughly cleaning the rotors and pads off with warm soapy water and a rag. I don't recommend brake cleaner or silencing sprays because they just add un-needed material to a contact surface and can actually cause noise and prevent full pad contact.

See HERE for troubleshooting information from English Brake Corp.

See HERE for Tech Questions answered from Bendix Corp.

I can also suggest checking the hub face with a roller-tipped dial indicator gauge to confirm that it doesn't have any lateral run-out. Run-out of over .002" would be out of spec.

HOPE THIS HELPS!!! Please don't forget to rate!

When i use the brake, especially at high speds it makes a loud vibrating noise, the sterring wheel vibrates and shakes a little. this starting happening after i got al alignment and new tires put on. i...


The alignment would not affect your breaking as the alignment only controles the direction that the front wheels face. You may need to check your rotors and make sure they do not need replaced and check the breaks while you are at it. The pads should be evenly worn and the rotor should be evenly worn as well. There should be no deeps grooves in the rotor or break pads.
