The brakes are completely worn out - the friction material on the pads is gone. - you will need to completely replace them.
A worn out bushing is normal on a car of this age - replace them all (the others can't be far behind). And no, these problems aren't related by anything else than the age of the car.

2001 silverado 1500 4wd 5.3 .just changed pads and rotor because of squeeling . Still squealing whats my problem


Hello Stephen,

Disk brake pads do have little metal tangs attached to the backing plates that will "squeal" when the pads wear down to a point of requiring replacement. Which you noticed and repaired.

Still have that pesky noise? Even after pad replacement?
This is caused by vibration between the pad and the caliper piston(s)or the guide pins.

You may have noticed a thin metal backing plate on the back of the pad...purchase some Brake Anti Squeal Compound and apply it to the backing plates (both pads) to stop this annoying racket.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

I have a 2006 f-250, i have a grinding noise that sounds like it is coming from the rear wheels, but when i apply the brakes it stops. what could this be?


Are your brake pads worn? They will have a small metal tab on one of the pads on each side. These are referred to squeeker tabs. They let you know when your pads are worn enough to need changed before you get metal to metal part failure. They are designed to barely scrape against the rotor when the brakes are not applied and make an annoying noise. I would look again and make sure all rear pads are in good shape. If they are you might clean the brakes, sometimes a piece of dirt or debris can make the same noise. If you have one pad that is worn more than the rest make sure you clean and grease the caliper slide pins when you change the pads. Actually, you always want to make sure you clean and grease the slides when you do a brake job.

Brakes problem


When worn out brake pads have a piece of metal contacting the discs to indicate that you need to change your brakes.

Just look for worn pads, I bet you'll need to change your front brakes .

I notice when I come to a stop like at a traffic light, I hear a squeak from what sounds like the front passenger wheel. I had it inspected in June and they didn't mention the brakes, it passed the...


Disc brakes usually include a part called a wear indicator. A wear indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pad that contacts the brake rotor when the pad material has been worn down to a certain level. When the wear indicator grinds against the rotor, it makes a squealing noise as you apply the brakes. This noise is a signal which tells you it's time to have your brakes examined.
In other words, noisy brakes aren't something to mess around with. If you hear that sound when you apply the brakes in your vehicle, have them checked out as soon as possible.
I hope this helps.

It could well be in need of new brake pads however this would be noticable more when you apply the brakes if the sound is in the rear its not the front brakes it could also be your wheel hub bearings are past there used by date its a serious problem and needs attension right away
