#22471, "Brand new clunking drums, woohoo!"


          

My rear drums began squeaking last month, and I was sick of hearing them sing like an opera singer, so I decided to just get new shoes for it and re-surface the drums.

I install the new shoes and the resurfaced drums and decide to take it out for a test drive. Well, now they no longer squeel but they do something even worse... they make a CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK sound every time I apply the brakes.

The clunking sound depends on the speed of the vehicle and the amount of force applied to the brakes. If I am going fast and apply the brakes hard, you will get a loud and fast clunking. If I am going slow and apply the brakes soft, the clunk will be softer and slower.

in other words...

Going fast, braking hard: CLUNK*CLUNK*CLUNK*CLUNK*CLUNK

Going slow, braking soft: clunk****clunk****clunk****clunk...

and all variatons thereof.

I even took disassembled the drums again and looked at them ever so carefully and I could not find ANYTHING wrong.

WTF is going on!?

No doesn't really sound like metal on metal... I have no fucking CLUE what it could be, as I checked and re-checked the thing 3 times and it looks perfect to me! It's kinda driving me nuts.

Every time I try to improve my car, it gets worse

It's a hollow kind of clunk. I am racking my brain trying to think of words to describe it but I can't. It just.. clunks

It's me, I'm hiding underneath your car beating on your rear suspension like Sideshow Bob.. j/k another free bump!

I'm not sure what your problem is...
