My truck was making a noise and it sounded like metal on metal so we went and bought new brakes. We took them to someone to put them on and they said the brake pads were fine but the rotors had indents in them and he looked at the drivers back brake and rotors and said they were fine they didn't check the passenger side why could this be.
