2002 Dodge Durango V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles
I have a question about some repairs that were done on our Durango. Last June we took it in to a local place because we noticed a lot of shaking and shimmieng when stopping. Everything was inspected and they determined it was the brakes ( what we thought). At the time they did a front brake job and replaced the rotors. Ever since we have noticed a squeaking noise. It squeaks when driving slowly, when you push on the brakes, pretty much all the time there is a squeak. In October of last year we took it back to the place that did the brakes ( the brakes are covered under warranty). They checked it out, the invoice I have said they " cleaned off rotors and pads, noticed the right front caliper was sticking and suggested replacing it. &Quot; I don't know anything about cars so I was searching on the internet and read that calipers wouldn't squeak and that if they " went" we would lose the brakes. I have an appt next Monday at a different place and want to have some understanding of the situation. Can anyone tell me if the calipers would cause squeaking. And shouldn't they have noticed that when they originally changed the brakes?
Thanks a bunch. And pardon my lack of repair expertise ; )
