2 new noises need some opinions!

Ok i have 2 new noises coming from the prowler and wanted to get some ideas before i start tearing down.

First off when i apply the brakes it makes a terrible grinding sound but it sounds like it is coming from under the floor board towards the center console. Like around the front drive shaft or something.

Second when i hit bumps i hear metal to metal contact in the front left.

Thanks for the help.

Call Chris from EAAC and he can send you one. They are fairly cheap.

Run with your engine cover off,might help locate the noise. Buy 2 bellows and get a t fitting, mount them both vertically. you'll need the extra expansion room of 2 bellows.

Do you just get the bellows from OEM or are their larger ones you guys are getting?
