If you ever need help, the whole crew of Houston is willing to lend a hand.

What's wrong with your brakes?

well my e-brake has to be raised real high.
i think im hearing a rubbing or rough grinding noise when i slow down.

also when i turn left it makes a squeaking noise, not like a power steering noise it squeaks and squeaks on minor bumps....

I see. I am beginning to hear it as well.

I am going to work on my brakes as well soon.

Since, I AutoX, brakes are quite important.
