Hi there, hope everything is going well for you. Had another question
on this truck. (96 Chevy full size 4x4)
I told you awhile back that sometimes when applying the brakes lightly
it would bounce up and down in the front end. I took the rotors off and
had them turned. (It took them awhile because one he said had hard
spots on it). I put everything back together. (I used the old pads
because they had alot of wear left in them and they were from Midas
with a lifetime warrenty.
One thing I noticed when taking the calipers off, on the drivers side
the bolts came out with the "round" thing that looks like a socket that
the bolt goes through. (Is this called a slide?)
The other side just the bolts came out.
ANyway when I put everythign back together and drove it there is a
"thump" sound as the brakes are applied coming to a stop. I think it is
coming from the passanger side. The thump gets slower as the vehicle
gets slower. Seems more pronounced the harder the brakes are applied.
Seems to stop fine.
I came back took that caliper off, drive those socket things out. One
of them had marks on it. (Maybe scored?) I cleaned them up and grased
them good and reinstalled them. The one that was scored or whatever
moved after being cleaned and regreased but required more effort ot
move than the other one.
I put everythign back together and drove it again. The thump is still
Will this hurt anythign and what can I do to get rid of the thump?
