Creaking sound when coming to a hard stop

3.6 L V6 Laredo

Simple test: At a speed of greater than 5 mph, without skidding, come to a complete straight on stop (similar to the last 25 feet coming to a stop sign).

When I tried it doing about 5mph, as the car stopped and then eased back, I always got a creak/groan coming from the left front (drivers side).

Could someone test this out for me ?

Could be something like this? Creaking Sound When Going Over Bumps

Maybe more like this....

Brake creak when coming to complete stop

I have the same issue (front drivers side) and posted about it in the above thread. It was *really* bad sometimes when I first got the vehicle (and when I posted which was back in January).

It's suddenly been a lot better the last few weeks. I rarely here it now and even when I do it's not as bad as it use to be. Definitely not a problem anymore once the brakes warm up; I now only here it a bit when they're cold/wet. It's gotten so better that I'd now be hesitant to say anything to the dealer - they'd think I was nuts. whereas back when it was worse I think they'd have had no problem reproducing it.

I have about 5300 miles.

Re: Creaking sound when coming to a hard stop

Thanks everyone for the links. It doesn't seem to be suspension related, since I figure I'd hear the sound going over bumps....which I don't. So, I'm going to assume, for the time being, that it's probably noisy rotors/pads that need some wear.

Re: Creaking sound when coming to a hard stop

I still have this after 1500 miles and a serious bed-in procedure.. L front like yours. Tech said it was the pad moving in the caliper, which I thought too.. I assume it is moving back when the wt of the vehicle bounces off the springs when the car just comes to a stop changing the force on the pad 180 degrees... The pad then moves a bit on the rotor when it hits its end of movement in the caliper making the sound that is the same as when you are slowly inching forward at a red light by letting up on the brake a bit and begin to move.

I personally think that if I really wanted it to stop I'd have to take the pad off and maybe put some syn grease on the back of it or a shim.. I don't think it's dangerous and neither did the tech.. He said it's normal, so did the service rep... I thought, yeah, normal for a chrysler... But really, I think it is a flaw in the brake design but not a real problem.
