Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

Ive been driving my sons car and ive noticed that it sounds like the brake pads are gone on the front and im feeling some vibration and roaring like a flat spotted tire when applying brakes, Kinda like when the pads are completly gone and their metal to metal. I bought new pads and pulled the rotors and skim cut them this weekend just to eliminate that part of the equation. Got it all back to gether and im still getting the road roaring and a little vibration only when applying brakes. Any suggestions

Rotors might be bad? When is the last time you changed brake fluids?

It's possible the control arms. If u hear the wheels scrapping onto the fender it's most likely the control arms are wearing out or something is loose

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

Control arms are ok no play there and I just cut the rotors when I did the brake job just to make sure that their werent high are low spots. Maybe its a tire . Ill try rotation and see if its still there.

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

You seem like you know what you're doing, hope you get it figured out. You don't have a hung up caliper, do you?

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

No caliper issues either. They sqeezed right in when i put the new pads in. Its funny. It feels like the brake pads are wore out and the caliper is pushing the pad into the rotor giving a rough feeling like metal to metal and goes away after you let off of the brake pedal. Got me stumped . Just was wondering if anyone on here has ran into something like this with one of their ludes.

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

This kinda happened to me too. Turned out the shims on the pad were loose and it was making this metal knocking sound when I would brake and when I let off the noise was gone. I took the pads off and fixed the shims, they clip onto the pads but they fit kinda loosely but I fixed that. Then I went on online and some people were saying that the pad would move around and cause this weird noise, This freaked me out.

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

To be completely honest, I never (and have never) used the shims when installing new brake pads for said reasons.

Re: Noise coming from front wheel while braking.

Do you need to use the shims? Or could you just put the pads in the caliper and it should b fine?

I have never used shims on my Preludes. I haven't run into any problems doing it this way for the past 7 years. Just make sure you use the brake pad grease on the back of the new pads.
