Car's warranty expired last month. I take it to my mechanic because I hear a swooshing/rubbing noise coming from my rear wheel. Turns out my caliper frooze on one side using up the brake pad and cut into my rotor.
That's three months after my rack and pinion needed to be changed. What's next? I don't wanna know:mad:

When There is heat, in this case your frozen rotor the grease becomes thin and bearing gets toasted. BTW you dont think your 391RWHP had anything to do with those brake issues do you ? ;) Kinda easy to go go go but dont forget the whoa whoa whoa.

I hear ya, but I don't think it was a hp thing but ford's crappy brakes. I hear it's becoming a common problem on the mustang. Who knows for sure. :)

But, on to new problems! :barf:

Update: After having my frozen calper fixed I then hear a clicking noise coming from my front wheel when turning. Turns out to be my center cap on my front right wheel. Somehow it starting making this annoying loud click. I took the wheel off and couldn't see anything. I put the wheel back and reinstalled the cap and no more noise.:D
