Default Clicking sound from front brakes

Hey all. I searched for this problem but nobody seems to have it and I was hoping someone might have an idea. Whenever I brake there is a clicking sounds from each front wheel. It almost sounds like the pads are grabbing the rotors and clicking into place. It has been this way since I bought the truck and just wondering if anyone had ideas on how to fix it.

THanks

First off thanks for the replies. As far as the abs goes do you guys have a similar sound when braking. It always clicks when I very first brake. When I am sliding in the ace or something I have felt/heard the abs kick in and this sounds different. That is more like a pulsating sound whereas this is a definite click as soon as I apply the brakes. The truck has about 50k miles on it.

Check to make sure that the caliper bolts haven't loosened and are contacting the back side of the wheel. I had this happen on a car a long time ago ('78 Pontiac Sunbird). Just a thought.

By the way, when this happened, it only made the clicking sound when you applied the brakes.........................

my neighbor has a chevy impala.it has 100,000 on it.every time he applys brakes, i here click coming from front brakes in my driveway.

if i was to guess,i would say something is wrong with calipers.how many miles do you have on calipers, if over 75,000,it could be calipers.

Check your caliper bolts to make sure they are tight and check the caliper bushings. The caliper should slide on the pins but not be all sloppy.

i agree with you but you would not think caliper would be wore out at 50,000 miles, so something loose could be it but if i was to guess, i feel something other than shoes is worn and he is getting play in there and caliper would be my guess.

my neighbor had new rotors and shoes put on and gets that click noise and had it befoe he did that work .

Thanks for the suggestions. I will have to pull the front tires off this week and see what is going on. Maybe there is something loose it just seems weird it would be on both tires.

To answer a previous question it only clicks when I first apply the brakes. It has a definite click from each front tire.
