I have a grinding noise, sounds like metal on metal, from the right rear. I've pulled the tire off, brakes are fine, no gouges on caliper, U-joints are all tight and no movement there. Before I tear it all apart, what should I look for? It's on at 76 vet.
Check the inside of your wheel. I just experienced a metal on metal noise on my 79 last weekend, and couldn't find anything wrong with the parking brakes I had just installed. Nothing made noise with the wheel off.
Come to find out, one of the spring clips holding the parking brake cable to the trailing arm had rotated slightly and wound up rubbing the wheel. D'oh.
