    My hellcat makes a thump or clunk noise only when I slow down to a crawl say less than 5mph to a stop but it happens maybe 25% of the time not all the time.

    I researched a bit and some say calipers, a bolt, or something loose?

    If I remember correctly, your car was damaged in the past ? Hopefully you can find what is going on. :confused:

    I really hope you find it, you don't deserve any issues now after all you have been thru. Did you say yours is Phantom or Pitch Black ? I posted a couple of Pics in the gallery of my car today. The black cars are the best:D

    sorry in a way it kind of is to a point. But it's just nuts and bolts.. that's the way I look and everything I take apart for the first time. Nothing my 2 hands can't fix.

    Yeah I understand. I appreciate your help very much! I'm sure it will give them some clues as to what to look for first before trying to dissect my brakes too much lol

    I would not drive it if it's the caliper bolts can FU a rim if they or one falls out
