Well I just got back from 7 months in Iraq, and took all the precautions with storing my 04 STi: Fresh Fuel with Stabalizer, Fresh Synth Oil, Air'd up my old stock tires to prevent flat spots, sprayed WD-40 on undercarage, eng compartment, and brakes to prevent rusting, washed and waxed, hell I even stored the car in a Car Capsule(see bubble)
When I took the car out of storage the other week it was just like I left it. I "un-stored" the car and went to drive it, and it sounded like the brake pads were rubbing the rotors as I drove. I have driven it about 10 slow miles to identify the problem and I believe it is isolated to the rear brake pads rubbing the rotors when I drive. At speed you can slightly smell the pads rubbing as if someone left the E-brake on.
Note: when the car was stored I left it in 1st gear, and had the emergency brake on. I also checked the "disengaged" gap between the pads and rotors with a .010 feeler gauge and there is NO GAP. I cycle the brake pedal and the pads hardly move.
Can anyone help
