I sat in the drivers seat of Tim's truck and pulled forward and back. As Justin guessed early on, I'd put a large bet on that clunk coming from the brake. You can feel it just as you press the pedal. My guess is that he'll find the Evolution pad is either a hair smaller overall than OEM, or the holes that the pins slide through are ovaled out more than they should be, allowing the pad to slide in the caliper and clunk.

Got my parts yesterday... time to hit the garage and see if this does anything. Who likes part numbers?

It's always a shame to get all those pretty parts dirty.

I like knowing what makes clunking noises. I thought for sure you were posting what you found!

Kinda stuck here. Got all the new bits inside the caliper now the pads are too close to fit back on the rotor. I popped the cap off the reservoir, even loosened the bleeder, and can't squeeze them any further apart. It is as if my rotors are too thick, but they're not I still have my stock ones any they measure almost the same.

Does the caliper fit on the stock rotor? You C clamped the piston (with old pads in place) to compress it all the way?

Ok I got it... Putting the tire on now stay tuned


edit: Still clunks. As loud as ever, at least when going forward. For some reason though it doesn't clunk when in reverse, though something must still be shifting because it clunks again when braking forward the first time.


I've got all new stuff on the driver's side now. yeah I had to use a clamp to compress the pistons.. but got it all on there just barely. I was missing most of the extra bits though, those pads had some backing plates but not the shims, nor did they have the top clip things. I think I remember hearing how he couldn't get them to fit... was hoping this was just worn pads, now what?

My new thought is that the hub and rotor have come loose somehow, and the sound you hear is the rotor shifting against the bolts that hold it onto the hub. I hate to undo a perfectly happy front wheel bearing setup, but that may be the next step here, to dive in one layer deeper and see what's up. Plus I'm sure the cavity between the bearings is running a little low on grease, so good time to top that off too as long as I'm in there.

Then the reason why I hear it now only forward and not reverse has something to do with less clearance in my pads now? With the new pads and all the shims there's just less play, but maybe over time it'll clunk in reverse again.

Dang.

If the hub/rotor are loose, you should get reduced brake performance and/or mushy pedal right? But you haven't mentioned any braking issues so I'm assuming you haven't felt anything different.

Your "W" spring is on the wrong side of the caliper. Well that is just a guess because the picture is sideways. Going off what looks like the bleeder and the direction of the shock sticker your spring is on the wrong side. It needs to be on the bottom of the caliper holding the pads in the "up" position so they do not click. Now this would only be a click/pop not a clunk.
