Well I went to this little spot after school that my friend found. It pretty much was a path that went off the road and around a tree but has been rutted out by people driving through it, and it was hard/sticky mud with some big tree roots to go over, it wasn't all that difficult but I had to use 4 hi to get through most off the time, I have gone through it before in 2 wheel drive when it was very wet no problem but it has dried since then. I did not feel like I hurt anything but as I was driving home my steering wheel started to shake but not really violent, when I used the brakes it pulled to the left, when I had the steering wheel straight and took my hands off the steering wheel it pulled right. When I got home, I noticed that my front right end was smoking, I looked under and the smoke was coming from the front right brake rotor. Then I went to the gym and I heard a squealing when I backed up or pulled forward slow, and if I where to drive at 5-25mph I could hear a squeking noise coming from the front right. What could possibly be the problem or problems? I could only think of warped rotor, or loose suspension parts, or maybe the steering stabilizer is going bad. Also sometimes when i start the engine it hesitates. It's a stock 97 sport.
I had something similar like that happen to me. The problem turned out to be a lazy caliper, and one day it just went. It would pull to one side, I felt like it was lagging when I tried to excelerate, and yes, it smoked too. After a little drive I got down and put the backside of my hand to the rim, but not touching it, and could feel how hot it was compared to the others. I put in a new set of calipers and it did the trick. I hope this helps.
Well I drove to school, and back today. It drove perfectly fine. No pulling, shaking in the steering wheel, and when i used the brakes it behaved like normal so i dont know. Im geusing it was just mud on the brakes?
