Thank you all for the suggestions... I did check the endlinks at NEBF - still look decent. didn't think to wiggle the wheels to check for play, though.

I have had intermittant brake squeak...but since the guys all said my pads looked good, I chalked that up to brake dust. Will be interesting to see if the pad is loose.

This Jinkling noise is intermittent too... example: this morning: No noise when turning right out of driveway (car cold). I don't have any right turns until 15 mins into my ride. Jinkled then. Also Jinkled when I beared to the right on a curve. So it is with both a soft bearing to the right as well as a full turn.

My endlinks 'jinkled' when they were worn out. It'* the compression washers for each bushing that jingle when the bushing wears enough to allow them room.

That'* very good to know... I wonder though...was your jinkle random, meaning depending upon the roughness of the road? This is a sound that slows and speeds directly in proportion with the wheel speed. EDIT: You know...like when you were a kid and put a playing card or something in your wheels of your bike to make a sound... that sort of rythm.

That is why I was wondering if something could be hitting on the rim.

We will check out the end links tomorrow and everything else - Ryan will be here around 9am...

Ryan.. If ramps are available use them to keep the car on it'* wheels and crawl under to see if the washers have any play. When you jack it up..there'* different pressures on the parts.

Might even be caliper is hanging up. Check the inboard pad for exessive wear or loosness also.
