Sometimes when I am braking, either heavy or lightly, I get a grinding style noise from the rear of the car.

I am kinda wrried is the brakes, or at worse, some suspension comeponents lettign loose. Any ideas?

Have you checked how much metal is left on the brake pads because it sounds like the friction compound is all but gone.

Not really, if the pads are completely gone then the metal backing will have damaged the rotor. Depending on how bad the damage is the rotor will need either machining or replacing.

My girlfriends ex car (94 SOnata) had the same problem. TUnred out it was soemting like a CV boot joint. That happened after someone hit the rear end of her car though.

Question is, can this strut jsut snap by itself? I havent hit anything or anyone.
