This most of the time happens when the brake caliper is sticking,but find out if it is the brake hose to the caliper that is causing the problem,or if the caliper itself is the cause.

Brakes pad's are good but grinding like metal to metal

Semi-metallic brake pads can squeal at times. If it is a grinding you hear however, I ask if you checked the pads simply by looking through to slot in the wheel at the outer pads, or did you actually remove the wheel and check both inner and outer pads. It is not uncommon for the caliper slides to get sticky, causing the inner pads to wear out much faster than the outer pads. Also, if you have riveted pads rather than bonded ones, it can look like you have a good bit of pad left but you may be grinding the rivet heads off. The easiest way to tell is to look not at the pads, but a the brake rotors. Grinding will almost always show as scrapes or gouges in an otherwise smooth and even disc.

I have replaced the steering rack, inner and outer tie rods, upper and lower ball joints and quick struts but still have a metal on metal popping noise when i turn left or right, slow to a stop or go over...

vehicle info would of been nice but I have read about rivets holding frames/unibodies together and loosening up causing similar noises mainly with Chrysler products

Gave so much noise like grinding rotor in my sonata

Check your brake pads, may be worn down to the rivets. If the pad wear is uneven from the other side, or from outer pad to inner pad, you need to have that checked for a problem with the brakes.

2006 Chevrolet Equinox is making a whining sounds when braking and the pedal is at the bottom... It can be felt in the pedal as grinding.

you need to get new pads (and probably a rotor) installed-your pads are now down to the metal, so you have metal to metal contact at the rotors. Look through the openings at the wheels, at the rotor surface-if it is an outer pad, you will see the gouge marks in the rotor face.. If the inner pads are down to metal, you have to get under the car and look at the inner surface of the rotors to see which one is all the way down to metal. Ideally you should replace both sides with new rotors, but at least replace one, with new pads (both sides, of course).

I have a 1988 camry that the inner brake pad is worn completely out but the outer has hardly any wear. Any suggestions?

You may want to clean the bolts that the caliper slides on and use some silicone lubricant on those bolts. The caliper needs to slide back and forth to use both the inner and outer pads. Sounds like the caliper piston is pushing the inner pad but the caliper is hanging up so as not to engage the outer pad.
Good Luck,

Thickness of brake disks for Suzuki Ignis Sport 109 HP, 2004

Generally you do not want to let them wear anymore than 1/16 of an inch either inner or outer pad. The inner pad will wear a little faster than the outer, but you will want to go by which ever one is thinner. As far as the parameters of new disk, they will have a minimum thickness per DOT standards. The minimum thickness is usually stamped on the disk (rotor), if it is not you can get this info from your local repair shop, or auto supply shop.
