R4S Pads making WEIRD noises! (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ E36 M3 Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by PL on April 24, 2000 at 16:08:08:

My brakes (esp. the rears) make weird
"clunking" noises as if
the calipers are "shifting" when I
reverse and brake at very slow speeds.
Also, when the car is off, and I push
the car (in neutral),
it sounds as if the pads are rubbing
against the rotors.
Is this normal? Or is this possibly
attributed to improper installation?

Despite Porterfield's "no squealing"
guarantee, my brakes squeal like a
bitch and there's exceptional vibration
when I brake hard. No, I don't think this
is ABS-related, 'cause the vibes feel
stronger than when I braked hard with
the stock rotors and pads.

Any theories? Is it possible that the
old pads were removed & inadvertently
installed on my car?

Please help!!! TIA
