      Check the tire air pressure - make sure the pressure is correct. Second step, check the following items; hub bearing / wheel bearing condition - note any looseness (with the wheel off the ground / suspended), check the front upper strut mounting, and the wheel alignment - any of these could cause the noise you are hearing.

    Wobbling issue when braking
    2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring When pressing on the brakes at higher speeds the steering wheel wobbles. I have had this problem in the past and it has been diagnosed as warped discs. They have been turned and it fixes it for a while then it comes back and again ...

      The lower control arms attach to the kmember on one end and the other end is attached to the steering knuckle( spindle) .The outer tie rod and strut are also attached to spindle.The control arm has rubber bushings on it ( kmember side of arm) that helps support,helps pivot,and dampens harshness and vibrations for driving comfort and stability.The spindle side of control arm has a pressed in ball joint which attaches to the pivot point of the spindle.If the control arm bushings and/or ball joint are defective,it could be causes the spindle to bind or twist in an awkward manner.Since the brake caliper mounting bracket is part of the spindle,it might be causing the brake caliper and pads to be twisting at an angle against the rotor/disk so I can see that as bein the issue

      The purpose of brake bleeding is to remove air, moisture, and contaminents from the brake hydraulic system.
      Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the procedure to bleed the brakes - beginning with the wheel furthest from the brake master cylinder.

      Several possibilities; faulty / collapsed flexible brake hoses at the front brake calipers, sticking brake calipers due to; accumulated dirt or contaminated brake fluid in the system.

      As a first step - clean out all the old fluid from the master cylinder and hydraulic brake lines, and replace with new fluid - be sure to refill during the brake bleeding process.

      Check the following auto parts sources for the replacement parts;,, - to list only a few possible sources. For example, they (RockAuto) list the flexible front brake hoses from around $8.70 each (be sure to always replace the flexible brake hoses in pairs, due to mileage / wear and age considerations).

      If the brake pedal is applied, will the brake lights goes off ? If the answer is yes.......
      It could be a defective brake light switch or the wiring was inter-swapped.

      The brake pad material that was original for your vehicle is semi-metallic. Recommended to use the same type material / same grade as how it was equipped from the factory.
      Stick with the noted brand names for brake products, such as; Wagner, Raybetos, Bendix, Monroe, Brembo, to name only a few - these maunfacturers will all have brake pads and components that are equal to OEM (original) quality or better.

      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the front disc brake pads (semi-metallic) from around $18.00 per axle set for your vehicle.
