Rear knocking noise. Need ideas FWIW
I've been having this for a couple weeks, ever since I put the swoopies on coincidentally.
When I brake and am coming to a stop I hear a knocking noise from the rear passenger side wheel area. It'* a consistent knock, knock, knock...as I slow down. I thought brakes of course, but upon inspecting them with Bill everything LOOKED fine. Shoes are fine, drum is fine. I did notice though the shield around the drum was rubbing on the drum itself, so I bent it back out. I still have the problem though.
So could this be the cylinder perhaps? Wheel bearing (I've gotten no humming though in weeks)? Something with the parking brake since I use that a lot? NFC here, maybe someone has had this before. It seems like a brake issue but I can't afford to buy parts when I'm not sure they are broken.
