    I was doing about 25 when the wheel whipped to the left and the left front end of the car snapped down dragging the tire... there is a noise that let me know before it broke and i couldnt have waited longer.

    I have had numerous attempts to repair this loud clanking clashing noise that comes from my outer left front tire and so far no one has diagnosed the problem correctly and I'm unsure of exactly what the problem is. I have had my brake pads rotors replaced and most recently I was exiting the freeway and my brakes just suddenly went out I want to crash into a pole I'm unsure of what the problem is I have my car taken to mechanic he said the brake pads were fine so I need help please!
