If it still shudders in the steering wheel, when braking, the rotors are not straight or fitted properly, The runout of the rotors should not be more then 0.04 millimeter measured at the biggest diameter of the rotor. Also wheel bearing play can play a role it your problem,

SOURCE: clunking noise and brakes grabbing

Check your brake hardwares make sure its in proper places and not loose. you would also want to check the caliper sliders, clean and lubricate with silicon lube. and lastly make sure that rotor backplates are not touching the rotors, you can do this by spinning the rotors while the wheel is off, if it is, then pry the backplates a little. hope this would help, goodluck.!

SOURCE: back brakes on 2006 Corolla make a clunking noise

The brakes need to be adjusted up.
The clunking noise you hear are the springs expanding.

Clunking noise in rear end when reversing then going forward


The rear suspension has no drive parts as your car is a FWD, front wheel drive. There are parts on the wheel axles which have bearings and also Brakes.
If you have rear disc brakes, the inner part of the rotor has a drum for Emergency brakes and these linings often peel off their brake shoe. The loose lining can get ground up in the turning rotor hub. The Emergency brakes are pinned to the brake backing plate and can clunk when the shoes shift. If you have rear drum brakes the shoes may be out of adjustment or worn out leaving room to rock as vehicle direction changes.
Bearings, excess play can cause noise. Suspension brackets, bushings within the mounts for these components can wear out. When parts are moving in 1 direction a "set" is grooved into the rubber parts. Changing direction of travel will unseat the part and make noise.
Traveling sound. You may be hearing a sound you suspect is in the rear of the car, but is actually a cradle mount around the Firewall. Sound travels through metal.
You need to get the rear wheels off the ground and check for play in all the components. For the cradle mounts, have someone ride the brake pedal and shift the transmission forward and backward to see if noise is generated or excess play is seen.

I have a ABS problem with my AU Falcon wagon. I have a loud clunking feeling and noise coming thru the brake pedal. Sounds as tho it is coming from the r/front but I think it is coming from the ABS...


If fluid leaking from the master cylinder finds a way into the servo or booster it could cause an entirely different sort of trouble. Master cylinders are usually very reliable unless contamination of the fluid has taken place - usually indicated by a darker than usual fluid colour and sediment in the reservoir, evidenced when a strong light is used.

A loss of brake pressure could signal the master cylinder is failing (the pedal creeping towards the floor) or a brake booster problem, perhaps caused by insufficient vacuum or an air leak. An assistant is useful when looking for such problems and also when searching for noises.

The steady clunk being felt on the brake pedal might be something fairly obvious like a wheel balance weight just touching a caliper when the brake is applied. It is time to become a detective - I recently had one of those. One wheel had a second row of balance weights that caused no problems until I fitted new brake pads.

If a close and careful examination and a vigorous shake of everything by an assistant provides no clues, it could be worth checking the air gap between the ABS sensor(s) and the reluctors if they are the exposed type. Sometimes corrosion reduces the diameter of the reluctor and increases the air gap so the signal is lost at low speed. The ABS brain thinks the wheel is not turning and tries to operate the ABS on that wheel. Usually not a steady clunk but you never know, it could be worth checking...

Cranking noise when i turn my car


sounds like u need to see the dealer on the start problem, to many possibilities, if I had to guess I would say engine problems, the brake issue is warped brake rotors, they need to be taken off and replaced or turned true on a brake rotor lathe.
