i think my car needs new brakes its a 2002 intrepid se . i have had my brakes for about 2 years or more without any problems they were the drills and slotted ones . some random ones from ebay. now they are making noise even when i dont hit the brakes im still hearing noise and my car needs inspected this month . what should i do take it to get inspected and let them figure it out or just get my own brakes and tell them to put them on while they inspect it. im thinking of getting these

What kind of noise? Describe it. May not be the brakes depending on the type of noise.

Sounds like one or more disc calipers might be hanging up and not retracting the brake pads. Is this coming from the front or rear? If rear there are the parking brake components inside the center hub section of the brake rotor to consider also and not the calipers in that case.

Have you taken a look at the condition of the brake pads and rotors yet?

the rotors dont look worn to me i have never taken apart breaks before so im not going to look at the pads. im thinking it might be the parking break because i have been using it lately maybe its hanging up. i will get it checked.
