Ok today I had something really strange happen and I need your help
It first started when i went to back my car up to come home after work, it sounded like something was grinding or dragging . . . so I pulled forward looked under my car and everything looked fine, I backed it up again and the sound was gone. I thought this was weird but I decided to chance it and take it slow . . . everything seemed fine
Then as I'm coming home i hear this grinding/squeaking noise again followed by a loud bang and a jolt/hop from the back end as if I had just ran something over?
So I pull over and once again look under my car and nothing seems to be loose or dragging. (I thought maybe the exhaust came loose) So as I was only about a block from home and it seemed to drive smoothly, I managed to get it home so that I could take a look underneath.
The exhaust wasn't loose or rattling and the wheels were on tight and I couldn't find anything that appeared to be broken when inspecting the control arms, joints, and linkages, however I noticed my break pad on the one side does seem to be rubbing now? WTF
