I have had this issue develop a couple of weeks ago… It seems to be coming from the front passenger side wheel well area. It’s only present during braking and coming to a stop. Seems to be also related to wheel speed. The brake performance doesn’t seem to be impacted but it’s very embarrassing creaking through a parking lot. The noise doesn’t seem to be present on a cold start but once the brakes warm up it really comes to life.
I noticed with both wheels up off the ground that the front passenger side wheel (The side making noise) had more resistance than the drivers side when trying to spin. Could this be indicative of a failing caliper?
I found a video of someone with the exact same problem on Youtube but they haven’t found a solution yet.
Here’s what I’ve replaced in the past week:
- Brake Pads
- Lower Ball Joints
- Inner/Outer Tie Rod Ends
- Wheel Alignment
Any help or advice I could get with this would truly salvage what bit of sanity I have left.
