The weights may be making the noise, but that is not normal. Check the weights and see if they are loose. The rattling is not normal.

If the damping weights are rattling, that means the rivets are not upset completely. Have a shop take a look at them. They can probably be fixed in a press, or they will need to be replaced if the rattling is unacceptable to you.

It's not a bolt-on. And it would not be an upgrade if it was.

wheel weights

Glad I saw this because my car came home from a 10-day stay at the dealer with so many other things wrong with the transmission and engine that I didn't even notice until later those little cubes were added! So I have a stack of wheel weights on RL and RR. No one in service ever told me why they put them on or what for but I see it in the parts list on my report.

I don't have an SS. So I don't think I understand why they randomly added them to my LT. What is this supposed to do?

Anyway, I have more sad stories to tell under transmission but was hoping someone could answer that for me. Thanks.

It is not normal,I would recheck the mounting bolts and the rattle clips/pins on top of the brake pads.

When did you buy your car? I thought it was only the earlier ones that had the wheel weights on the Calipers. GM has since brought out pads with weights attached to them. They are more "cosmetically" pleasing. LOL

I would check with your service department and see if they would install those pads and remove the wheel weights from the calipers. Would be worth a try.

have e mailed my service manager....will update on what he says....no matter what these wheel weights are going away this summer. I hate them.
and GM not sending me a notice on a fix is inexcusable.
#6046 is my VIN

? just pop them off? They're just stuck on like they would be stuck to your wheel. If you have the ones that stick out of your calipers you can cut them off with a dremel.

GM put them on there because brembos have a tendency to squeal until they are all the way warmed up. It's so crybabys dont hear normal brake squeal from a performance caliper and pad setup!

.....and why is this thread back from the dead? People are still buying first batch 2010s?
