  1. Have a Corolla with similar mileage. Went to an Angie's list auto shop and got an alignment. Had no noise whatsoever when braking when entered this establishment...but after leaving the establishment heard a weird wup-wup rubbing noise from the back upon braking at the red lights. Called back the shop and asked what it could be. They said to bring it back...which I did. They said they "drove it hard" and did not hear a thing! Within the week, went to another shop and found that the drums and shoes on both sides had to be replaced. They tried to machine them to smooth out the warpage...but it was too messed up! As an addendum, the drums and shoes had been replaced only a little over a year ago.and were practically new! So...what my credit card and I have learned is this...It there are weird sounds and the mechanics that screwed it up will not be honest and say they did it...it only ruins more and more car parts the longer that you drive it. By the way, with the new shoes and drums, the car is quiet as a mouse as it was before going to that hateful place. I learned that what can cause this warpage to happen is if the tire is put on too tightly or too loosely...it will with the rotation of the tire and the accompanying heat, cause the warpage. The dealership replaced my front brake pads and I had the same noise upon braking. Went to a local mechanic and they told me that the dealership did not put the clips on the new brake pads. This allowed for decreased stability of the new pads and some movement of the new pads. The rotors were machined and new brake pads were installed with the clips properly put on. The noise is gone when braking on any kind of incline or road conditions now.
