this past saturday evening, i went deer hunting with my uncle. i had to take my 2WD 98 Ranger into a lot of mud to get to where we were hunting. i guess this is kinda my fault because i knew there was mud, and i really wanted to get some mud on my truck, but after goin through all the mud my brakes make an awful crucnching noise when i brake decently hard. they stop just fine, but they sound like a fork in a garbage disposal. this sound continued after i cleaned off both of the front brakes (which are the ones that are making the noise), and cleaned off the undercarriage of the truck. any suggestions on how to make the sound stop, or at least make it quieter? Thanks for any input.
PS: this has happened before, and i have replaced the brake pads a few different times, and the rotors twice, and the sound never really stopped.
