Did some work to the subie this weekend!

I did some work to the old Subaru. I Cleaned up and painted my calipers, Installed some new brakes, and put my new wheels on. Enjoy!










Quick question also.

After Installing everything I took it for a test drive so i could bed the brakes and what not. I noticed a sound from the drivers side rear, that sounds like the brakes grinding on the rotor but it only happens when cornering. Its fine when im going straight. I checked the wheel bearings there fine. Its not tire rub. I checked my lugs, also checked the caliper bolts to be sure there tight. Any suggestions as to what it would be?

Double check the slide bolts on the caliper bracket to make sure the caliper slides back and forth easily.

Believe it or not, I had the same problem with the grinding noise when turning this past week. I would check your rotor---take it off, and look at the back side of it, and the backing plate. You should see a clean mark where its been grinding (on the very inside edge of the backing plate). What I did and what most do to fix this problem is to take a grinder, and cut off the inside edge of the backing plate where it is rubbing.
