    If you notice a clicking coming from one of your front wheels it is your rotor, Brought it into the dealer and Chrysler/SRT Advised that is a normal/expected sound and they are taking note of it. It usually only occurs when the wheel is turned and going at slower speeds. It does not affect braking or stop distance and is purely just a sound.

    Below is what was written on my invoice.

    Customer States when turning the steering wheel to the right they hear a clicking noise

    Road tested vehicle and verified customers concern, opened star case #937650 chrysler informed us that they have been seeing this concern more and more they have come to the conclusion that its a characteristic of the rotors.
    No repairs done at this time.

    I started to hear it a couple of weeks ago, to me, there is nothing normal about that.

    Go to your dealer, start a case. If enough of us complain maybe they will take action. I honestly think it was a bad run of rotors and they hope we just wear them out and replace them with a new batch before they'd have to consider replacing them for free.

    I'm not so sure it was a bad batch. My 392 Challenger had it and that was built 6 months before my HC, which also has it. I'm no expert but I really think it's a normal trait of these 2-piece rotors. The mating surfaces between the rotor hat and ring have some expansion play and that's probably what we're hearing. Except for the sound, there's no functional issue.

    I noticed it after I took it in for the exterior protection and mud flaps installed. At first I thought it had something to do with the mud flaps. But I do hear it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Every time I have turned my car 180 degrees with the windows down I have heard this click. Since the car never displayed any other problem and the brakes are super smooth anyway, I figured it was some normal type of sound. Knocking on wood, it still does not have a problem, 4200 miles and ready for its second oil change now. Maintenance cost still under $200, mods....forget it the calculator quit!

    ya this was brought up in the past here, I have it too. Slow hard turns to the right and it clicks (not turning left though). I contacted SRT directly to talk about it, they gave the obvious lawyer response, "take it to a dealer and have them inspect" but I haven't done that. Maybe next oil change..which is like next week.

    I recall NX91Notch saying this is normal in some circumstances. If I recall it may have been the different expansion and contraction properties of the different parts of the two piece rotor. Tagging him so he can set us straight.

    Yup it seems to be a normal characteristic with the 2 piece rotors. The Viper guys have the same issue. And according to what we talked about in Viper training it was due to the expanding and contracting of the metals where the bolts meet. And is considered normal. Was told DO NOT attempt to tighten those bolts beyond spec. Another member and I went searching for what the actual spec is on that bolts and (at least for the time being) Chrysler doesn't want us messing with those bolts. There is no torque spec in the manual for the rotors. The other board memeber sent and email to Brembo....they gave the standard repsonse to check the torque spec with the service manual.

    I wouldn't go messing with those bolts unless someone can track down that torque spec. From what we talked about in training over torquing those bolts will cause a world more trouble than a click noise.

    You guys want race car parts you have to deal with race car issues lol.

    Every listen to a race car? Not talking about watching it at full speed arond the track. Listen to it rolling around the pits at idle. You will be surpirsed at the noises it makes lol.
