Take the brakes apart & clean up all rust,check everything out
& lube things when putting back together
Have to do that at least once a year

Don't need machining every year or new pads, but have to knock
down the edge on the rotors & get rid of rust & lube (anti-seize on
everything but inside the caliper slide bolts, there you use the synthetic caliper lube

The clunk could be worn drive axle joints or drive shaft joints
or shocks
When your on the brakes or hit bumps your loading things differently & the clunk goes away

    Ok thanks for the good info.Iv crawled under the truck and done a quick check but ill be able to check things better this weekend. do you know if 07 dodge ram 1500's have anti rattle clips or pins for brakes that would cause the clicking noise i hear. or is it probably rust like you said.

    the rattling is my brake pad on the driver side front i can move it back and forth with my fingers,

    Your going to have pads that when new have to be field to get them in & others that will be loose & move some Get rid of the rust & use anti-sieze on the all sliding surfaces Clean the piston face & knock down rust on back of pads & lube just the parts you clean eg bare metal

    the clicking noise was where the anti rattle clips weren't on the old brakes the new brakes came with them and know no clicking. the clunking noise turned out to be the caliper on the passenger side was missing a bolt and it was slapping the rotor every time i hit a bump.so everythings good now besides the truck has idles real low and shakes a little and misses during a steady acceleration

SOURCE: clunk noise from front left suspension

My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.

SOURCE: Front end clunking noise going over small bumps

It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

There is a clunking noise in the right front tire when i turn right what could that be?


Most likely will be the CV joint needs to be replaced. CV's are around $60 each and I recommend do both at once and just get it over with. Takes a couple hours.

Sway bar could be the issue but not likely unless it's broken at the end link.

If its the bearings - you should feel a wobble in the steering wheel or if you put the car on a lift and try to wiggle the tire/wheel and it does have play in it - likely to be the bearings and you would hear a constant noise from that tire and the clunking would be more constant.

2 things to look at, check your front swaybar end links, these tend to make a clunking noise when bad. Also, if you're having a feeling of beeing bumped a tad with that clunk, check your slip yoke on your driveline, needs to be greased.

Definitely have the front end and brakes checked out at a place like Sears where the diagnostic is a no charge deal.

They may be able to detect what parts are obviously loose while it's on a lift.

I would not let this go very long.

The price might be high to fix this on a Lexus compared to a Chevy, but I think that it's worth investigating.
