Rear Brake Help!
 
Hey guys! I have a squeak coming from my driver's side rear wheel area. I just replaced the brake pads. I can hear two squeaks at once: one squeak goes with the revolutions of the tires that starts at 10 MPH and continues until the engine noise drones it out. The second squeak happens when the brakes are first applied, but quietens as the vehicle comes to a stop. This is driving me crazy! Please help me out. Thank you in advanced.

Make sure you didn't bend that alignment spring that runs below the caliper and it is rubbing on the rotor.

What's that? I have no clue what to look for or what to do.

Sometimes this wire spring thing gets bent or misaligned and as you can see its very close to the rotor hat so it doesn't take much to make it rub.

Did you also lubricate the caliper sliding pins when changing the pads? Dry pins will slow down or prevent the caliper from releasing properly and could cause some noises.
Does the sound change when applying the brakes?

No buddy that's not mine.It's the only pic I could that clearly shows that spring and to the OP also check the rotor splash shield. It is easy to accidentally bend it also while working on brakes.Frank I had to change the rear lowers on the '99 last year. I got the whole arms for a little more than the bushings. Do you need them?

And yes Green still rocks! I found the rear control arm link.http://www.shopjeepparts.com/rear-lo...ee-p-9131.html Their prices are really good here and good service.

Thanks Dave, but the bushings are still fine. I have to check the front suspension, because i feel that there is some play overthere. Not that strange, with all the potholes and millions of oversized speedbumps we have overhere:eek::mad:

Which bolts need to be lubricated and with what? If that clip is bent, how do you reccoment keeping it from rubbing?

At figure 19 you will see the 2 caliper sliding pins. These pins should be lubricated once in a while to keep the caliper free to slide without binding. A little high temperature grease will do, dont use too much that it will come out and foul the brake pads. This is also valid for the front caliper sliding pins.
