On my 79 I get a rattling that I have, finally diagnosed as a sloppy drivers side brake caliper slide. Will be gone by the end of summer anyway as a result of the impending 5-bolt conversion :)

Thanks for the advice. I think the caliper is a
good possibility, as the rattle has an "unsprung"
sound to it.
A picture of the car (along with my
Dad) can be seen at hemmings.com online car show. You
have to hunt around for it. 78 olds starfire. Thanks
again.

An easy way to find out: the rattle go away w/ the brakes on lightly???

If you need the new caliper bushings(plastic) Lemme know I have a few extra new ones..

A common 'rattle' in H bodys, heard as the wheel
goes over small bumps comes from the calipers.

Either the plastic retaining sleeves oneach side are
worn (common) or the caliper itself has worn down
enough to become loose.
jack the car up safely and
spin the tire forwards and backwardsin little
jolts..see if you can see/hear any movemet.


Marco

A lower A-arm bushing could be bad too

John,
Welcome to the club. Sounds like you
have a pretty decent Monza. I have had mine 11 years
also, and it will be a while before it is done the way
I want, tht is if I don't change my mind. Enjoy
catching up on all the posts, you have many a day trying
to read them all. :)
Dick
