Just wanted you guys to know (while i have time on the net) that I found the big CLUNK source in the trep (it was a big CLUNK on turns and stops) well... I took the front wheels off at Josh's garage (aka my friend's garage) and well.. You know that pin that goes in the rotors? The driver's side rotor pin (caliper pin?)*isnt there* so this means I have no brakes or anything in the drivers front of the car. The CLUNK noise is the caliper smacking into the wheel.
I've been driving the car since August trying to figure out what the clunk was and it happens to be a dangerous thing. Go figure <_< Josh and I are fixing it tomorrow at school...

be very very carefull,i had a intrepid in today with the same problem. remove the rotor and use new bolts and sliders put the slider on the bolt and see how far the threads go in on the hub,the problem is the threads totally rust out and the caliper bangs around and then falls off,you might have to repace the hub assembley,and they are available from a used parts place,please check these threads
