    Banging noise from ABS/calipers when hard braking?

    When i do a quick dead stop(i would push the brake pedal all the way in to lock up the brakes) in my 05wrx around 30/40 mpr, either the front or rear brake would make a loud banging sound, i can feel it on the brake pedal, it feels like the ABS kicked in for just a half second instead of pulsing, but it makes a loud banging sound.

    Anyone has experienced this? Thanks.

    Subaru has a TSB I believe for the ABS computer. Have you had yours done?

    The wrx's do have alot of ABS complainants kicking on/off at odd times.

    Check all your brake mounting brackets, and caliper slide pins, and check to see about the service bulletin.
