I hit a curb, and now my car makes a screeching sound every time I apply the brakes. What is it?

Answer

Most likely your rotor backing plate is bent, or you may have bent something else near the brake caliper. I highly recommend having someone look at the damaged area and give you a full estimate on the repairs, just to be safe.
