    ws6 problem!

    Hey, my ws6 has currently been acting funny. When I turn my car to the right it squeeks, even if I don't use my breaks. However, if I go to my left there is no squeling noise. Could this be bad break pads or a wheel bearing going out?

    Check your brake pads. They are probably worn out.

    Do you have subframes on? If so are they welded or bolted?

    If no subframes I would reccomend checking the endlinks on your sway bars.

    If Yes subframes make sure everything is still torqued.

    This is what I'm thinking as well.

    Brake pads are nearly rubbing on the rotor all the time, so if your pad is gone or on the way out, it's letting you know.

    If both pads are good, try putting some brake quiet on any metal to metal surfaces within the caliper. Obviously not putting any on the pad itself, but some on the back of it. It removed a squeak I had when braking.

    Be sure to service your caliper pins when you check the brakes. They tend to seize up and can cause brake drag, excessive wear and noise. Clean the pins and bores good and use a synthetic caliper grease.
