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.
