    Possible CV problem, need some help?

    I have a 01 STS and while driving home I was coming to a stop and then a hard jolt occurred. I went 20 feet and had to pull over. I noticed my brake calipher was grinding on my rim. I took the tire off and notices all this grease by the CV boot. I'm learning as I work on my car. Would a bad CV joint cause the calipher to shift and grind on the rim? Also, other things I should look at? Is this a possible DIY project?

    Sorry to hear about your problem. This is the wrong forum to look for help for your car. Ask down in the Seville forum. Good luck and welcome to the board!
