Noise during braking - repeating thump or thud and low pitch squeak coming from right front when wor

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Stanley P. Pickens, Aug 28, 2006.

  1. When I brake I sometimes hear more than feel a fast repeating thumping
    sound as I come to a stop but there doesn't seem to be any steering wheel
    vibration. It may be more noticeable during a brake while turning. I have
    stood up on the front end and there is a easlly noticeable squenching
    sound "rubber-like" from the passenger's side front wheel as i make the
    suspension go up and down with my weight.

    What is the most likely culprits?

    Wouldn't you know my 60 mos of warrany just expired?

    Thanks for any help.

    For the thumping, you probably have nonparallel or rusted rear rotors.

    As for the squeak, I'd primarily suspect sway bar bushings, but it could
    be almost anything in the suspension.
