RX300 front brakes/question
Hear grinding sound from right front upon final slow to a stop.
Recent front brake job and within 6 months the right front (pass.) inside brake pad was down to metal with outside lots of "beef" still. Caliper was easy to retract, moved in and out freely during trials, slide pins not stuck/sticking. Slider pin boots/seals in good shape.
Never felt brake pull to side nor heard screamer tab but it was well worn down.
Turned rotor, installed new pads both sides (4) lubed slider pins well, good braking but still grinding as slowing to a final stop.
Installed brand new slider pin set both sides, well lubed, cleaned and lubed pad end carrier/slide bracket. Thoroughly checked clearances all around for possible rubbing. Had wife stand on brakes with engine revved slightly to check clearances under braking stress (4 wheels UP).
Still has grinding sound at low speed braking, just before coming to a final stop.
Today I plan to switch rotors and caliper mounts R/L to see if sound moves.
