I can eard a metallic noise from the front wheel. Since 2 weeks I'm looking to find where he can come from and now I think I've found and I'm a little bit frightened. This noise is comming from the front break disk they are moving in the screw place. See the picture Have you ever see this problem ? Is it Normal ?,I think it's normal mate. Semi floating or floating discs are fitted so they do move. Someone more knowledgeable will be along soon I'm sure to confirm or correct me!,,,

Shock mount problem?

Hi there, does it do it on a good road? If not then I wouldn't get too concerned, it is a front wheel drive I presume and any front wheel drive car will follow any imperfections in the road and track the road imperfection, is it like the steering has a mind of its own and wants to follow the road surface, if so then this is normal, if not please take it to your mechanical shop and have them look at it

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...

A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

1999 harley roadking rear and front axle torque specs??

Use loctite on the threads of all parts. For the front, holding the axle with a tool in the hole, tighten the axle nut to 50 lbs.

If your bike has dual front disk brakes, you need to insert a 7/16 drill bit into the hole in the axle. This step is necessary to give the proper spacing to the brake discs. Loosen the pinch bolt at the bottom of the fork. Move the fork so the drill bit rests snugly against the side of the fork. Now tighten the pinch bolt making certain the drill bit still contacts the side of the fork.The pinch bolt should get not more than 30lbs.

for the rear, the axle gets 60 lbs. If you loosened the shocks to make room for the wheel tighten those bolts to 35lbs.

I sure hope you kept all the spacers and washers in their correct positions.

Here's hoping that gets you back on the road.

Ride safe, ride longer.

I noticed that both my front and rear wheels are not spinning freely and that it appears that the disc brake pistons have not fully rectracted. Is that something that a diy mechanic can tackle? I've...

The first thing tp try is a simple pressure wash of the calipers just in case a little dirt is the cause. Wheel lock up surprisingly is normally caused by dirt in the master cylinder. There is a large hole in the master cylinder that feeds the brake piston in the master cylinder. Right next to large feeder hole, is a pin hole that is the brake fluid return passageway. If the pin hole becomes plugged with dirt or rust the front wheel will drag or even lock up. A simple cleaning of the master cylinder will often fix the lock up problem. If the machine is older consider replacing all of the rubber parts and refilling the system with fresh DOT 3/4 brake fluid.

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. There is a "violent" vibration that occurs only when you are going 40-60 MPH and you hit a bump or pot hole on the highway. The front end begins to...

Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

Metal against metal sound

I would check the upper & lower balljoints & control arm bushings. If it has torsion bars in the suspension that could be the culprit as well. Poke a small hole in the ball joint boots & spary wd40 in there & see if the sound gets better or goes away.

Need advise about truing a front wheel

but I mention Aprilia and they run for the hills. Seems like most people only want to work on Hondas and Harley's. Does anyone think that this is a project that I should try myself? Or is there anyone out there that knows of someone that could do a perfect job?I just got through dealing with the same problem. I even got a new wheel and it wasnt' true. The dealer couldn't true it because the wheel is too rigid. I found one of the best businesses I have ever come across during my search to get the wheel fixed. The company is Woody's Wheel Works in Colorado. I shipped them my wheel they trued it the day I got it and shipped it back out the next day. They are a great bunch of guys. The site is ,,
