Hello everyone- I hope you have some ideas for my problem. When I step on the brakes, I hear a knock or a clunk coming from the front end. It doesn't happen each time though. Any ideas what may be causing this? A bad bushing perhaps? Thanks.
Hey Bob, any luck? Not trying to hijack this thread, but I put new brakes on the front and a couple weeks later started to notice a clunking/rattling up front whenever I hit a bump. Took me a couple weeks to realize I don't hear it when applying the brakes. Also, when I apply the brake, I hear one clunk/ rattle coming from the same area. Sounds like it's coming from the wheels. I think we have a similar problem. Mine is driving me nuts.
Well turns out it WAS the caliper. Found out the hard way.... Went out to hit a few trails sunday afternoon and was suddenly cut short when the front passenger caliper lost the bottom screw causing the caliper to swing out and lock up the wheel.... i was s******* bricks at first thinking maybe i had busted a hub or something... Well thanks for the help Derrick!
