    I had to replace the shims when i did mine, kept knocking with the old ones in it. No really the problem you're havin though. Copper grease helps to pull the pads back off the discs

    Does this happen at low speed, if it does jack the car up, enlist the help of a friend and spin the wheel, gently brake and see if you can locate it. Or strip it down and rebuild it, it'll be cured, probably. Lets face it, its only gonna take half an hour
