Re: 05 grand limited

Did this start before or after the replacement of the sway bar links and sway bar bushings?

Have you looked at your front diff bushings?
How are the front struts/strut towers?

Re: 05 grand limited

sounds like your missing some antirattle clips in your front brake calipers... when you have the brakes applied it will apply pressure to the loose pads and prevent them from knocking around... That would be the first place I looked.
