Problem with Front Drivers Side Brakes
 
Coming from the track on Friday night, I was on the turnpike about to get to a toll booth and I hit a Pothole going at least 50 mph. So when I got back into the city, I hear a LOUD LOUD squealing (not grinding) noise when I lightly tap the brake. When I press hard on the brake pedal, it stops.

I went over to NX-1 and ask Mario if he could please allow me to put the Jeep on the lift. He did (Thanks Again Bro!).

So Mario gets the Jeep on the lift and we take the wheels off and look at the Front Drivers Brakes and the rear drivers side brakes. We see nothing bent or any rocks stuck in between the rotors and the pads.

Does anyone have any idea as to what this is?


Thanks!

I second that one. Maybe could've knocked the pad loose or something. Did you take the caliper off the wheel to see if there was any debris between the pad and the disc?

Yes Alex. They were installed about 2 and a half weeks ago and did not start making this noise till after I hit the pothole.

There's an anti-rattle clip that may have come off. The squeal is actually a high pitched vibration,very common.
