    Default Front brake screeching!

    I swapped my front discs and pads and the drivers side ended up screeching something terrible. Even more so when turning left, lol.

    I whipped the wheel off tonight and it turned out the bottom section of the dust shield was touching the disc.

    The inside of the old disc was worn more than the other faces of the discs. I guess this could be the reason.

    All sorted now, anyways.

    Just thought I'd post my findings incase anyone else is having similar problems.
