MITSUBISHI LANCER BRAKES PROBLEM

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer • 130,000 miles

When the car is driving there is a sound of like 2 metals scrubing against each other. I picked the car up, put it in neutral but the front wheel was hard to turn and the I was wondering if the problem was with the brakes. Or perhaps the axle, because the joint boot is not in place

Very possible. With the boot gone, the joint is not lubricated and could be your issue. Resolve that first and see if it persists. Have the brakes and wheel bearings checked as well as axle.

So I put grease on the joint but it didnt help at all. Is there a way to perhaps loosen the brakes. I was driving to day and the brake pedal didnt react till about it was half way down
