Good morning,
Bless you guys for having this forum. I will soon make a donation, and I REALLY appreciate any help.


I own a 1995 Subaru Legacy L wagon. The original owners were from Canada, and as you can see by the miles, they didn't drive it too much, and yes there are rust issues. While making a U-Turn one day the car's "shock on the passenger side actually SPLIT in the middle leaving the tire leaning outward! After the repair and about a month later it started making a continuous clicking noise when pressing lightly on the brakes. If I need to make a sudden stop you hear no clicking, but it makes a grinding sound when coming to a complete stop. The funny thing is that when it rains you hear nothing! This vehicle has new axles, tie rods, struts, bearings, breaks, and calipers. I have not replaced the ball joints.

I am a female and can only explain it the way I picture it happening in my mind:

PRESS BREAKS>>>ROD OR SOMETHING IS "CATCHING/LATCHING ONTO SOMETHING AND LIKE THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE TV SHOW'S WHEEL, CLICKING AS SUCH.

Please help me before I lose my mind.

Hi there,

have the drive shaft nuts re tightened as they can settle a bit and you can get this click from the splines when the brakes are applied.

Thank you for replying Mark @ mphautos.

I wasn't sure if my description made any sense. I'm surprised, to have gotten a response. I can now at least have this checked.

Bless you, and have a good one.
