I have an issue where I get a pretty loud metallic sounding rattle coming from the passenger’s side front wheel well when going about 20mph on a bumpy road. If I apply the brakes while still maintaining 20mph, the noise goes away. At a standstill (without the brakes applied) if I tap on and off the brake pedal fairly quickly I can reproduce the noise.
Dave Z suggested that my Porterfield R4S pads may be to blame due to bad fitment. He also suggested I replace the anti-rattle clips in case they were bent out of shape or something. Today I installed new OEM pads and anti-rattle clips. The noise is still present under the same conditions.
This is driving me crazy! I want to say it is something to do with suspension, but it goes away when the brake pedal is applied.
Does anyone have any ideas or things to try? I am willing to try almost anything right now!
Thanks in advance for any help… josh
