Hi, I have a 99 Dodge Dakota 4x4 V6. I replaced the front pads and rotors. Now after the truck is driven for a few miles and warms up the front end makes a growling/grinding noise. When I press the brake it goes away. However when I take my foot off the brake to take off it is at its worst. I can then drive a few hundred feet and it will fade away untill I press the brakes again, and then accelerate. The noise goes away whenever I press the brake even if I press it ever so slightly. Thanks any insite will be greatly appreciated.

Did you grease up the pins that the bolts go through. These pins need to move pretty freely.
If not the brakes well be sticking againest the rotor.

Good luck jess s
