You need new brake pads and rotors and possibly calipers, the rotors are most likely warped. or the pads are worn enough where the caliper piston extends to the limit and is not stable in the caliper and wobbles.

Usually this is just rotors and the cost of rotors is around $25 each and brake pads about the same unless the brake pads where recently replaced then you just need rotors. are you going to do this yourself? It is not hard to do. check back if you need help

Front end rattle that goes away when brakes applied


the squeaking sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. And the pulling to one side is cause by unequal braking pressure caused by plugged rubber brake hose, bad calipers or wheel cylinders. Check the bearings by lifting the car with a jack, block the wheels, and use a jack stand for safety. now wiggle the tire around. If it has any play, the bearing is bad. Replace it. I would replace your brakes as well. Good luck

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied


If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

Low speed rattle from front end --especially when right front tire hits a small bump.


If the problem goes away when brake is applied, then a loose brake bad or missing pad clip is possible. Either way, you should have it inspected. A loose brake pad is not dangerous at all, but something else loose under there could be potentially catastrophic, such as a tie-rod end or a ball joint.

i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!

Clunk when shifting car into drive from park 1990 ford taurus.


If the front end vibrates when you put the brakes on it could be a few different problems. Your need to check the brakes, they may be worn. if the back brakes are worn your front brakes are doing all the stopping. if your brakes are fine then you are looking at the front control arms or the upper and lower ball joints. You can take your car to a brake and front end shop for a free estimate. You are probably looking at about 400 to 1200 dollars.
I hope this helps you out
