Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Is the noise coming from the brakes at the wheels or from the brake pedal or firewall area?

Is the stopping distance taking to far?

Does it pull left or right while braking?

Will this noise occur when applying the brakes in park or must you be moving to get the noise?
