    New Noise Help!!

    I got my front brakes done (new pads and rotors smoothed) and now have a new noise. When ever I go over a dip or a vvery bumpy road, it sounds like there is something loose underneath the car/wheel areas.

    The brakes feel fine and no noise there. I am taking it back to get looked at on Monday, does anyone have an idea what it may be that is making this noise??

    Thanks for any ideas.

    I took it back and they looked at everything and they re-tightened/checked it all and said the car looks perfect.

    My friend also looked at it and said the only thing it could be is that my tires have very low tread on them now. Could the low tread cause me to hear road noise alot more now.......especially over dips/bumps?

    I do not think its the shocks at only 32,000 miles either.

    How many miles on the shocks? I'd look at those.

    if you got the decarbons, then 32k is plenty of miles to run em before they're toast if they've been run hard. a wore out shock and a bumpy road make for a really loud nasty ride.

    You May Want To Check All The Clips That Hold The Pads In The Calipers First To Make Sure They Are There At Each End But Also If They Are Secure And That All The Slides And Rub Areas Are Lubed. They Have Been Known To Squeak And Rattle If Done Incorrectly.

    One thing to look at which not brake related but is your ball joints. I had a similar thing and it drove me nuts. The Ball joints were fairly new so I did not think it was that but finally changed it out on the side with the noise and that got it. As you said, normally when you go over a bump but not all the time and usually when moving from a red light. Anyway, I would check that.

    I had a similar problem as you. It ended up that where the brake assembly actually attaches to the car (don't know the technical name) there are 2 bolts. When I got my brakes done they didn't tighten them all the way. I let the noise go and my whole brake caliper came loose and locked up my wheel. destroyed a new set of torque thrust II and cost $120 for a tow. I pulled the rim off when I got home and seen the bolt was gone. it cost $2 to replace...
