Front outer brake pad rattling inside brake caliper
So to start, already searched and nothing seemed to appear like this problem.
Front outer brake pads rattle around the caliper when going over bumps and imperfections in the road.
There were some old brakes that I replaced with the Wagners. The noise went away for a few days then came back clear as ever.
Brand new pads, all greased properly and with the anti-rattle clip installed. The ball joints, swaybar links, Engine mounts and tie rods are brand new. Wheel bearings need to be replaced on both sides. The rotors were re-machined once about a year/30k miles ago.
I cannot seem to figure this problem out, minus that my struts are bad(probably) but can't see why that would cause an issue with the outer brake pads rattling. With the wheel on an a nice bang from the sledge the rattle is there.
What is the heck do you guys think this is?
