I've noticed a very "tinny" and slightly high pitched rattle/ringing sound when coming to a stop recently. This happens right before coming to a stop regardless of the speed I am decelerating from. (no it's not a grinding sound like when pads are worn out) Initially, I thought it was a loose exhaust manifold or heat shield. When getting an oil change a few weeks ago, the guys at the Jeep dealership told me it was my brake pads rattling against the rotor. They said they hit just about anything that could be loose with a hammer and could not recreate the sound. They said that the pads can get hardened and the very small (paper thin) space between pads and rotor can cause the brakes to ring like a bell. They suggested I either ignore it or replace my brakes to the tune of $1100. I'm obviously not having them replace my brakes for that amount, but (to me) the logic of it coming from my brakes sounds like BS. Frankly, I can't see how the mass of the rotors and/ or the pads could produce such a ringing sound. These are stock brakes with plenty of life on the pads and only 24k miles on the Jeep as a whole. I'd also like to avoid the game of replace the pads, that's not it, replace the rotors, that's not it, chase the exhaust, that's not it, etc... game. Just curious to know if anybody has had a similar situation and can confirm that it is (indeed) the brakes.
