When I apply my brakes on my Saturn SC2 when going over bumps, I get a strange bonging sound. Brakes or traction problem? I do have new brake pads.

Do you
have the same problem?

Brenda, it sounds like it is coming from the brakes, but I can't be sure. Check to make sure everything is tight, make sure the backing plates behind the rotors are not hitting anything, and check suspension components such as the coil springs.

The sound is coming from the front end and it was the same before I replaced the pads. Could it be the rotors?
