jsut put the rotors on this past weekend...I just got a chance to take the car for a drve...when i started to pull out, i hear this slight knock...i stop and put it into Reverse and let the clutch out...slow..and i heard it again...all we did is tighten up the cradle and put the rotors on...did we miss something? the noise is coming from back there....also i noticed, since tighting up the cradle..it made my bushing squeak...the car drives ok. could my rotors be installed wrong or not tight...:hmm:

Did you have to back off the parking brakes on the rears? Is it possible that they are too loose now? This happened to me...might try adjusting them a bit.

Which bushings - the TSB bushings? Mine fit so poorly there isn't anything for them to squeak against :banghead:

Check the bolts that attach the calipers to the spindles. They come with liberal amounts of loctite from the factory and are a pain to R&R and some may not be fully tightened. So what you would hear is the caliper slaming the bolts when you apply the brakes. That is my guess.

Also, there is a small torx bolt that holds the rotors in place. You might check to make sure they are tight.
