I did all four brakes yesterday. Not the first time. It's an 01 with 240K.
Took it our for a test drive, several miles and everything seemed fine. Brakes nicely, no noise. I took it on the hwy tonight and it rumbled, like I had a flat tire. I pulled over, checked and everything looked good. the rest of the way it appeared to be fine below 45MPH As I headed home, NOT on the hwy, it was making the noise even at 20-30 MPH.
It sounds like its coming from the front but hard to tell.
I plan on taking them apart in the morning. Any thoughts on what I should look for out of the ordinary?
