hiljak Posted August 24, 2004 Report Share Posted August 24, 2004 I just recently put new front rotors and pads on my 99 STS and sometimes (maybe 40% of the time) I get a thumping noise while coming to complete stop. Its different than you would hear from a warped rotor, its and actual thump. I did some investigating and see the steering linkage (not sure the name) has a rubber boot that appers to have burst. I took a pitcure and attached it. Are these things shoit when the boot is comprimsed? Also, if I change it and mark the bolt and nut to track the exact number of turns the nut is and set the replacement accordingly, would I still have to get the car aligned?
