560 SEC brakes

I need some help. In moderate to heavy braking, off ramps and such,my 560 sec, brakes grinds as if the pads need to be replaced,they don`t. It does not happen all the time,and it`s not hard enough to engage the ABS. The brakes and rotors were replaced about 17,000 miles ago by the previous owner.
Any thoughts ?

Have the brake calipers been checked? There can be small vacuum leakes to the master cylinder, as well. If not already a member, consider joining the SEC forum at -- an invaluable resource for my SEC. Even if you don't join, there is a search engine for our archives on the website.
