    All caliper pins there?

    Were shims provided for the pads?

    Go back and look everything over again. Chances are something is out of place or not lined up properly. Manually spin the wheel by hand with the car in the air and see if you hear anything.

    Just depends on what it is, so hard to say if it is safe to drive or not.

    Yeah, think I'll just go in to work late and go to my mechanic in the morning to get it solved faster. It sounds more like when your rotor goes bad but without the shaking when hittin the brakes.. thing is I changed them last month so yeah. I'll post what I find out tomorrow

    Sounds like one of the pins fell out. Be very carefull when driving a vehicle in this condition.

    x2 on the pad shims. if not inserted it will rattle and knock around. also a good point is checking the pins

    How many miles are on the pins?

    They could be worn down and letting the caliper vibrate

    Holy shit batman.. Im glad it didn't either. Did they loosen on their own? Or did you forget to tighten? I would make sure they are not backing off on their own.

    im almost sure you forgot to tighten them. It happens. I always checked mine after I get new tires. I find that all of them are still loose.

    I lost one of caliper bracket bolts while driving. The whole assebly went up scraping the inside of the wheel until I could stop. I was lucky to find it. i put it back and problem solved. I keep checking all the bolts at every oil change or after I work with something.
