Rubbing Noise Caused by Parking Brake/Spring Kit?
Regarding: Rear passenger side wheel/axle
I had the bearings replaced in that wheel last year. Then went for an alignment. Car still didnt feel right, and there was a definite squeak and abrasive noise while moving, kinda of metallic. The guy told me when my bearings were bad, the wobble of the wheel (and it was wobbly back then) caused the rotors to bend and now it was warped and brushing, making the metallic brushing noise.
So I got new rotors and pads, had them replaced a few months ago, and now the noise is significantly less, but there is still an audible metallic squeak from some rubbing still. I called my mechanic about that and he said he forgot to tell me, but there was a problem with my parking brake, and it needs to be replaced, along with a spring kit.
Is this a reasonable diagnosis, and if so, where can I order these parts to take to him? Autohauz replied and said they dont carry this stuff... Thanks!
