Hi all. I am considering purchasing a 2003 Accord LX, 4cyl., 117,102 miles. Drives nice with no seeming problems or noises until braking.
From ~35mph and above I apply the brakes and there is a rhythmic, low toned thumping, bumping noise that doesn't seem to start immediately but closer to the stopping point.
It seems to be coming from the front right side but not entirely sure. It's not a single thump but continuous.
It continues until stopped then disappears moving forward again. It isn't very loud, similar to bumping your palm on a somewhat solid surface. Rotors, pads look ok upon quick inspect in sellers yard. Boots are intact. The vehicle has sat for a couple months.
Any ideas, help would be vastly appreciated. Kinda in a spot as my usual vehicle popped it's head gasket.
Thanks!

I bought it. The noise is very pronounced when braking from higher speeds. Warped rotor, pads, something installed incorrectly .... guess I'll find out on my own.
