Hey all, when I had the car up on 4 jack stands the other week (cleaning off the wheel weights before balance & alignment), I decided to check the brake drag on the front tires. When rotating the tires by hand w/ lugs still attached at full torque, the front wheels only spun 1/4 to 1/2 turn before stopping. Is that normal for front PP brakes? Seems like a lot of brake drag.

I thought I heard a slight grinding sound when I did it, my guess was maybe brakes riding the rotor, but unsure if its that or bad wheel bearings. Since I autocross it, I'm curious if the stock brake lube has worn off or something? Would be curious to hear your thoughts, thanks.

Normal - in my opinion. Mine's about the same from what I remember.
