the brakes have not been set properly. may be something stopping the pistons going back in. failing that the disc's are bent, can happen when over braking down hills etc. you would need the alinement checking.
It is usually the CV joints in the drive shaft(s) that are worn, and make this noise.
I would look at your CV joint boots, are they dirty and full of grease on the outside. Does the inner wheel well have grease slung onto it ?
Replacing the drive shaft is a difficult repair. I would have a reliable auto repair center give an estimate.
Please let me know what you find.
It may be a u-joint, check that.If the driveshaft moves back and forth due to worn u-joints, replace both of them. Also the splines going into transmission on driveshaft tend to form a groove causing it to 'clank' upon starting/stopping. Chevy offers a nickel-plated yoke to replace the offending part. Do not plate yours as it will not fit after. If you don't replace it, you can grease it and the problem will go away for a while till the grease wears thin and the noise returns. If that's the case it's a very common problem you can find it and the solution easily all over the internet. I suspect it will be u-joints or notched yoke. Lastly, it may be a rear-end that needs the lash adjusted. On my truck the sound is a clank that doesn't sound horrible just annoying and a little worrisome till I knew what it was. The GM clank baby, been around for years. If it is u-joints you'd be getting vibration at speed that gets worse and worse till it's unbearable.
remove the straps off the drive shaft u joint then pull drive shaft put plastic bag over transmission and put rubber band on bag so fluid don't run out next remove the cert clips from the drive line using a pair of plyers do this on both ends, next get a small socket that will slide threw the bearing hole and a large one to fit oppisite end with a hammer tap the old bearing out and then tap new one in and replace cerclips with new clip and install grease fitting grease fitting and installs into drive line hole. and your ready to go.
If the boots are ripped on your lower ball joints you will need to replace them, rain water has washed away the factory lubricant they have no grease fitting from the factory. Replacements will come with grease fittings. Tie rod ends can also be the source of the noise, same deal no factory fittings. VERY COMMON PROBLEM.
