i'll start backing up and when i cut the wheel while on the brakes i'll hear a clunk. i was just wondering if anyone has experienced this before and knows what i did wrong or need to fix to make it quit. to my knowledge the rotors are on right, the calipers are attached correctly, and the wheel is also on right. :confused:


for clarity, it only clunks at low speeds with the wheel turned and on the brakes.

When was the last time you lubed the drive shaft?

Could be a bad ball joint.

Can you pinpoint where the sound is coming from?

it's not the driveshaft, ive greased up recently and the clunk clearly started after the brake job. ball joint i might believe cause i see some grease kinda stuff on the passenger upper boot, but i still don't think that's it either. it's coming from the front end, if i could pinpoint it any further i wouldnt be asking vague questions like i am lol. it seems to be driver's side if it matters.

during the install, one of the pistons came out of the caliper. would air in the lines possibly cause a clunk? they were bled some, but i don't think we got it all out.

and as far as volume it's not like a super clunk of doom like the hard braking slip yoke clunk, it's like 1/4 the intensity of that if i had to put a proportion to it.

make sure the pads are properly seated onto the caliper "pin's" that they sit on. If they are not in place correctly they can and will shift around as they are trying to spin free as they grab the rotor.

you know im almost positive this is it now that you mention it. i may pull the wheels again this weekend and make sure everything's in place. if that doesn't fix it i'll bump the thread.

thanks for the help guys

i cant even intentionally make it clunk now, i guess everything got settled. i think there was wiggle room in there somehow.
