Weird problem I have right now. I just replaced the front brake pads on my
89 park ave (170,000 miles on the car). The rotors were still really good,
so I had them machined. Pads are decent quality.... here's the problem.
While driving, SOMETIMES i get a medium-pitched whine coming from the front
right. The pitch DOES NOT CHANGE with vehicle or engine speed, and if I
touch the brake pedal (not even hard enough to turn on the brake lights) the
noise stops, until I let off the pedal. It also seems to go away faster then
55-60 mph, and doesn't appear until I'm going 10-15 mph. I can also feel a
light "hum" in the steering wheel and floor when the noise appears.
Any help would be appreciated.
