Hey guys help me out if you could,
I have brought my 03 SCT in two times now. the first time they said they could not duplicate the problem and i said let me take you for a ride. then they heard it. They replaced the strut tower on the drivers side. That did not fix it and he said i know the problem is there is a TSB for brake calipers and they greased them and it still makes the noise. Its sounds like the brake pads are rubbing on the rotors that is the best that i can describe it. The brake pads are good.. i have bought new rotors but have not put them on. I think the next thing i going to have the shop try is the hub? If anyone has any idea what or where this noise is coming from please help me out.

Do you still have rsa's? I bet thats it.

How the hell did they replace the tower?

Yeah i have the rsa's , they replaced the stut assembly or something they said they would mail me what they done to it nothing yet.

Is the noise at low speeds?

yes it seems to get louder when you stop at a light then start to go again.

In that case its your RSA tires.

Search for RSA's, you will read alot of people had that problem including me. Thats why i knew what it was right away.

Coupe is right. I had the same problem. I changed the pads and rotors and still had the noise. I found out it was the RSA's. I replaced them and the noise was gone.
