    awfull sound when braking

    I have an 05 wrx all stock. When i brake I hear a sound that is tough to describe but it sounds like twisting metal or straining metal every rotation of the wheel. It starts at about 30mph and gets worse as I slow down. During normal driving i hear a slight sqeaking on every rotaion of the wheel and only stops with light pressure on the brake. I just swapped out pads and rotors thinking this was the problem but the sound started up within a day. Any thoughts or help is greatly appreciated. thanks

    This is quite unusual if you replaced the pads and disks and it still happens.

    Maybe you have a stuck caliper.

    it is the front left, I knew i forgot something. could the caliper be twisting or being pulled by the rotor on the pins??

    i used ceramic pads, it is usually only at real low speeds when the sound is the worse. I really dont want to bring it to the dealer because it will probally be something simple with my luck. thanks for helpin

    If its a low pitch sound it seems like its normal. I put cheap pads on my beater and it always made noise.

    caliper

    The obvious...is the caliper torqued on snugly? (I only say this because I pulled that stroke of brilliance myself a few years back)
