okay, about 500 miles ago I put on new rotors/pads on the rears, and re-tightened the brake lines, as they were leaking a tad, and the pads were rattling.... seemed fine before. finally got my new tranny in, and took it for a sping, and the rattling is back. almost like they are loosing pressure. I don't see any brake line leaks.

any thoughts?

don't think so. the set of rear discs I got had the pads with them, and no shims of any sort.... I neverreplaced the pads in the other vehicle I had with rear discs, so I never thought about it.....

trashwagon did the same thing till i replaced the rotor. i thought maybe it was smacking the caliper bracket, thin solid rotor = warpage.

It was the clips! theset of rear discs I put on, didn't have the clips with them,but luckily my extra set of rear discs had the clips. no place in town had them on hand. should be getting a new set tomorrow for my other set.

put 'em on, and nice quiet brakes finally :) I also got a chance to put on my new Rancho shocks. so I'mpretty much set now for the 4th of July parade....
