This car had a really crappy brake job done a couple years ago after one of the front calipers froze up. It actually went back to them twice after it was supposedly done, and it's still not as it should be.
Here's the symptoms
---There's some vibration when brakes are applied, so obviously rotors are not trued
---The pass side makes a clicking sound like a rock is stuck in the tire tread, it's not loud at all but that's exactly what it sounds like is a rock. There is no rock. What could this be?
---The inner edge of the pass front tire is wearing as if the alignment is off. Seems pretty heavy wear also. I don't want to align it until I find out what's up w/ the brakes and if they f---ed up a wheel bearing etc.
---A mechanic who checked the front end on a lift couldn't find any obvious reason for the bad alignment ie: bushings, ball joints etc
Basically, I want to try to remeady the horrible work this shop did on the brakes, and I'm wondering what to look for and correct as it has these symptoms? It was a couple years since the work was done so I can't take it back there.
thanks for any help
