    Default Droning n/s/f brake

    Hope you guys can help.

    Last Saturday I have my front tyres changed, and whilst the wheels were off I had a good mooch arounf the arch. My disks seemed pretty fresh with no grooving, and the pads had loads of meat left on them.

    Anyway driving around later I decided to give the car a good running, I'm ashamed to admit it but a lot of hard accelerating/cornering/braking.

    After I had unleashed my adrenaline and switched back into safe sensible driving, i noticed a drone coming from the n/s/r brake under all braking condition, sounding quite severe under harder braking.

    Car was then parked up overnight, and in the morning it was running like normal.

    The question is....have I ******ed up my pads/disks in any way??

    Maybe the pads were replaced with aftermarket rubbish and aren't quite a perfect fit? ie there's a bit of movement there.
