Big Bang

Today when i reversed my NF out of a car park, i sudenly slammed on the brakes because i was heading straight into a big LPG cylinder. There was a very loud bang from the front of the car, like metal hitting metal. It wasn't my nuts hitting the floor, i know that much.

Is this just a case of tightening under body bolts, such as those holding the K frame in place? is tightening the underbody bolts part of the regular servicing? I noticed it's part of holdens major service, but i suspect its to stop their cars from falling apart.

My Ef used to do the same thing.

You might find that it was your brake pads moving in their seating in the caliper. The pads predominately are forced only one way and by slamming the brakes on when reversing, the pads may have just moved the opposite direction. Driving forward and braking should have seated them back into the normal position.

But then again I could be completly wrong. :s2: Best to get it checked out.
