My best guess is it's DS, but not certain on that. The rotor is running true, as in I sure don't have any shaking when braking. I'll pick up some new pads, you guys can give it a listen on Wednesday. I also have a spare CV, I've never swapped one though so it's not something I'd try on a school night, but maybe Saturday if all else fails.

If it is Saturday, I might want to watch that...

After further deliberation, and additional diagnosis by some of Toyota's finest, I've ruled out CV and am back to brakes. I have ordered what's referred to as a "shim kit," as well as new W springs, new pad retainer clips, new outer clips, and new pins. In addition to the new pads I picked up last week, this will be new everything except the calipers themselves. My sources say this should be all I need to remove this clunk... a lot of this is "special order items" so not sure when the box will get here, stay tuned.

here's your exploded drawing.

I know you're short on time for this fix. I think you'll lose that clunk once you replace all that, but I'd love to know if it was just ONE thing causing it. Like just one pad....

We'll see how experimental I'm feeling when I ultimately get to this. I have a feeling that it'll be obvious, like something just isn't there.

They are pretty specific where to apply the disc brake grease.

It'll be interesting to see if that works Tim. My Tundra has a clunk in the front end when I hit cracks in the pavement. It goes away if I'm dragging the brakes a bit. Which makes me wonder if some of the same components (springs etc.) are either old or missing. I rebuilt the brakes though so I'm pretty sure all the components are there.

In your videos were you braking when the clunks were happening? You must have been, because you were slowing down in either forward or reverse and the rig would clunk. I would think that if you were on the brakes there wouldn't be any room for movement in and around the calipers.

Activating the brake is what activates the clunk. It won't happen unless you hit the brake, then clunks only once per direction. Is that the same as your Tundra?

No, dragging the brakes slightly prevents the clunk from happening.

have you considered th swaybar bushings? I remember a noise on my 80 thats was fixed by replacing the main bolt (The one with a cone and filled with greese) as it had loosened and then became stripped
