    Brake pad rattle?

    Okay - so my 2004 WRX has had a rattle for some time that I've narrowed down to the brakes. When moving say, below 50mph, every tiny bump there's a rattle with it, above 50ish, no rattle.

    So, yes it's the brakes. So what's the fix. I did a search earlier (and today) and recall something about appropriate greasing? ...somehow I couldn't find this today. Or would it be the retention springs? I'd like a little better idea before I dig into this.

    Thanks!

    Are the pads needing to be replaced soon ? If so, replace them and new springs and see if it goes away. The pads need to be done anyways.... Springs wouldn't hurt to replace.

    try the red anti squeal stuff on the backside of the calipers, it works usually.
