Brake Issues...

Asked by May 17, 2019 at 10:28 PM about the 2009 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey, I have a 2009 Dodge Charger and
something’s wrong with the brakes. My mom
was driving it around and she hit a hugeeee
bump on the ground, a pretty bad bump.
There were no weird sounds or clicks when it
happened but immediately afterwards, the
brake pedal felt loose and spongey. There’s
also a click in the gear shift when the car is in
park and you press the brake pedal. I’ve seen
other q&a’s where people say “there’s no
problem” or “the car does that over time” but
literally there were no problems until she hit
the bump. Any solutions or suggestions?

Maybe the tie rods. Common signs of a faulty tie rod end include a front end alignment that is off, a shaky or loose steering wheel, and uneven or excessive tire wear.
