Clicking sound from brake or suspension?


Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I have a '99 996 C2 that has 19" Champion wheels and Cross coil over suspension and a H&R rear sway bar. Mileage is at 75K. The brakes are in very poor shape and in fact today I ordered new rotors & pads and hardware from Sunset. (Thanks Jeff!) Lately I have been hearing a clicking or ticking sound when I first pull out of the garage and the frequency is tied to the speed of the wheel not the engine. I only hear the noise on the passenger rear and only at very slow speeds 1-10mph. I pulled the wheel off tonight and couldn't find anything that would make that noise. Any guesses?

Thanks,

Shawn

Probably just your brake shoe rubbing inside the rear disc. When you replace the discs, check the shoes and associated assembly.

I got the new rotors and pads installed and found the noise. The wide rear tires have worn a hole through the plastic liner and the tread pattern at the edge of the tire is catching the edge of the plastic where it wore through. I'll snap a picture when I can in case this helpes someone else. At the moment I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with it.

For reference the rears are 305/25 R19.

more to come...

I'm a dumb ***... picked up a nail in the tire and didn't notice. Tire didn't go flat but was down to 25psi and that's what was causing the rubbing. Pressure back up to 40lbs and no more rubbing. :lightbulb:

I found it when I checked the pressure to lower it a bit. Saw 25lbs and instantly knew that's why the tire had been rubbing the plastic.
