ENDING FRONT END CHUCKLE

Chrysler says that complaints of "front end chuckle" on 1983 Aires, Reliants and others, may be traced to the suspension struts. It also says that a scraping noise on the rear brakes of 1981 Omni/Horizon and Aires/Reliant cars, can be caused by the parking brake return spring contacting the rear brake drum hub. Cadillac informs brake technicians that the 1983 Cadillac Limo might demonstrate a scraping noise from the rear of the vehicle, especially during right hand turns. The cause of this scraping noise is the left-hand brake drum contacting the stationary backing plate. Also from Cadillac, comes information on a brake noise on the 1982 Cimarron. This is caused by a lack of front disc brake pad noise insulators. For all these problems, the article offers a solution.
