Hello everyone, I am new to the dsm/gvr4 and even new to the mitsu brand.

I have picked up #1519/2000 and have been working on it now for about a month replacing odds and ends, I cannot seem to figure out a metal on metal sound from the front but its still on going. not sure what else to put here but I am sure that I will be looking to you guys for some assistance and am going ahead and thanking you all for the guides that I have already used. And, man this car came with a trunk full of oem spare parts that I am still trying to go through.

If anyone has a C5 center cap.... ooooof I would love you

Take care!

Welcome. Car looks nice. OE parts are getting harder to get, so you may have a good resource there.

What kind of sound? Rotational? Vibrational?

Could be lots of things, but check the bolts to the block that mount the fixed shaft for the LH front axle shaft. They use a special shoulder bolt and sometimes are replaced with something else and can loosen.

Hello

it seems to be rotational and variable by speed. it may just be pads sitting against the rotor, but i bought another caliper and its unlikely that another one is doing the same thing. I have a bearing and seals that I am going to try and have pressed, but plan to order both axels for the front to do it all at the same time. Other than that I need to figure out this silly boost controller as its peaking out over 25psi, then look to tune it, but im very unfamiliar on what to look imto for that.

Thank you!

Post what type it is. Someone may have experience.

Basically you need to determine how it adjusts and then dial it in with testing.

Heyo, Well i have changed the DS caliper up front, and the sound was no different it sooooounds like pad drag, like just ever so soft. The PO left a bearing and 2 seals so i will be swapping that. I also will be going ahead and ordering 2 new axels and just send it with that too. can anyone think of anything else that i should do while I am down there?

I dont think it would be the downpipe as its speed dependable, not rpm.

Things it could possibly be.

Engine and trans zone: oil pump, water pump, timing components, alternator, starter. AC pump if you still have it. Potentially something in the trans. Clutch assembly could be a source. Thrust and throw out bearing.

Wheel hub assembly zone: wheel bearing, pads on rotors, worn pads, Seizing calipers, just because you changed it with a good used or new part does not mean itís not defective. You have aftermarket wheels, you could have tire clearance issues.

none of this is speed sensative. its rpm sensative yes. But if i go 45 miles an hour, hear it, then shift into neutral. the sound still remains as if i were in gear.

I dont beleave it would be a clearance issue, as it came out of no where after about 3 weeks of driving.

if its the calipers that would be mega unlucky to have the same failure but not impossible.

pads on rotor, or bearing is whats I think it is, just need to get it pressed in

If it is happening at 45 mph and not anywhere lower itís probably not wheel bearings. Youíd most likely hear it from the get go if it was. Same if was your pads on rotors.

If itís happening when you drop out of gear and are coasting in neutral my bet it on pilot or throw out bearing.
