Rear end grinding
The past few weeks I've been hearing a grinding noise while im rolling to sa stop. I did brakes thinking they'd worn to the backing plate. Turns out the pads had plenty of life left on them. Now im at a loss.

Its not noticeable at anything over 15mph or so. It doesn't get worse around turns.

Any ifeas?

Not sure what you mean. Makes noise around turns even when you're not applying brakes?

What is the condition of your calipers? Maybe one is hanging up.
Ever test to see if one is running warmer than the others?

Going aroundto turns does not seem to make a difference. Ive seen a few threads on here thatyou people weredon't having grindingany noises aroundin a turn.

Its difficult to explain. I would guess that the grinding noise would persist even if I weren't hitting the brakes. Both rear calipers compressed very easily. No evidence of a hangup, no rotor warping or running hotter than the others
