Front end brake noise under hard braking

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone will point me in the right direction. When doing some spirited driving where braking hard and often is required, after a while I hear what's best described as moaning sounds coming from the front of the car. Backing of and cooling things down makes it stop, subsequent hard braking brings it back.

A further important detail, it does not happen when braking hard on a straight-ish road, it happens when braking is followed immediately by hard turn in. I think that last bit may be especially important. I uprated my tie rod ends to turbo items many years ago, the rest of the suspension is stock from a Carrera 3.2. Brakes are also from a 3.2.

Sounds like a dragging brake to me. I had this for a long time. I swore it was from the front but turned out to be the rear in the end!!
