Umm. no I havent experienced this. But if you are that can mean a few things. Check your ball joints, tie rods, and all the bushings. It might be unsafe to keep driving around like this. Maybe you should bring it to a front end specialist.
Cheaper... I work at a car parts place, Carport. Exclusive to south only, privately owned company, mostly Alabama. But I'm sure y'all didn't really care about that. Another thing that happens is real bad drifting to the left when I have to put on the brakes hard. Figured it was the rotors anyway, just checkin to see if anyone else had any brake related problems of the sort that wasn't rotors.
Honestly, do NOT go and get brake work at sear's i brought my car there, and was charged like $400 bucks for new rotors and brakes....and they squeak all the time...LOUD! i brought it back and complained, they checked em, fixed em, and weeks later they did it again....the line for complaints there is usually longer than the waiting one.
It sounds to me like the sliding pins on one of your calipers is stuck. This happened to me last year and trust me, the outcome was not pretty. The caliper ended up seizing completely, which damn near caught my wheel on fire. If I were you I'd have this checked out before you end up with a problem.
Was wondering if anyone can tell me the size of the nut to take of the rear drum? I'm trying to replace my drum, due to me cracking it trying to change my brakes, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the size is?
I'm used to the drum that you pull or slide off. Not one that you have to take off with a nut. so I was prying and hammering trying to get it to slide, but didn't work. I didn't have my book with me to see how it was changed, and so by doing that, I cracked a little triangle piece in the drum.
