\015 I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get cleaned & lubed when brakes were done. I drive from place to place for work. Today, about a min. after I left a place I start hearing & feeling under accelorater thump thump thump. Thought I had a flat. Didn't drive like a flat. Just sounded like one. There was no flat. I left the next place & go a bit slow not knowing what's wrong. Eventually I got up to 45mph & went over RR tracks a couple times. Thumping stopped the rest of the way home. Have not driven since. Any ideas?\015
The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.
