hey everyone. lately while driving the EL i noticed that after i start the car and go for a drive and after turning left or right the car seems to make that metal on metal sound.....its like the brake disks are hitting something. but yeah only happens at the start....once car is nice and warm and all parts are lubed up she runs fine without noise. the sound isn;t continous...its like every second. so everytime the car rolls it starts to make the noise thats why i put it down to somewhere along the lines of the wheels. how would i go about checking whats wrong with it?

phong =P~

Even though it goes away when warm I'd be looking at your discs, check the smoothness of both sides, my inner pad wore faster than my outer and had nasty metal sounds and rooted rotors. Um thats all I can think of at the moment.
