Just got back my car today from being in the shop for quite a while getting rewired and straightened. It drove decent, aside from a few minor things the shop didnt do, that I asked them to do. Tonight, while I was driving it, it started seriously acting up. When I would turn the wheel almost all the way, the horn would intermittently chirp, but that was its own issue. The serious problem was this: earlier in the day, when I would brake moderately hard (just had 4-wheel disk brakes installed) there was a sort of knocking sound that felt like it was either coming from the front left part of the suspension or from the transmission. It was hard to tell... Later in the night, I was driving a few people around, enough to weight the car down a bit (the car already rides fairly low in the back...I'm getting new shocks/springs) and when I'd be braking there was a serious rubbing sound, that evolved into a loud clanking. It wasn't too bad until about 15 minutes later, when the clanking was heard no matter if I was accelerating, cruising, or even braking. At that point, I was right near my home, so I just parked it. What is going on? It did NOT sound good. Some people have told me it might have to do with suspension linkage, but this seemed like more...almost like the transmission was grinding. For the record, it is a '67 with a mild 350ci, lunati cam/lifters, demon 750cfm, headers, original 2.73? rearend, new bushings, 4-wheel disk brakes...all I can think of now. Thank you very much to anyone who can help me.
