somethin wrong with my brakes?

Postby integrakyle3019 on Wed Oct 11, 2006 10:23 pm

hey ya'll

quick question... everytime i slow down and stop, my teg screams at me, haha... sounds like the brake pads are just rubbing against the tires or somethin... it makes a high pitched, almost screamy, scratchy type noise..... wut is this? i think somethin just needs to be adjusted or replaced, but i dont know wut.... anyone know? thanks for the info...

Time for new brake pads, most likely. Have your brakes checked out, and have them replaced if necessary (remember to have the rotors cut or replaced if they can't be cut).

How many miles? Have the brakes ever been looked at? Are those disk and drum? All 4 making noise or just one?

unless you have sick high millage front pads is all you willl need.
60 to 75 % of your stopping power is from the front brakes so the fronts wer out far faster than the rears.

Most shops will attempt to sell you a set of four and a turning of the roters.

How many miles are on the car ?
