2000 dodge intrepid clicking noise when apply brakes

It is probable that one or more sets of brake pads are worn down. The clicking noise is the wear indicators letting you know.

The knocking sound is possibly worn rear suspension bushes at some point, but I don't know your model well enough to say where.

I have recently developed a loud "rattle" in the

if this only happens when you apply the brakes it most likely sounds to me like your rotor is warped and needs to be replaced... if you are going to be doing this make sure that you replace both sides and do the brake pads as well.. the brake system on a car is not something that one should cheap out on.

There is a noise from the front end of my 2001 odyssey which became noticeable about 400 km ago. It started out as a clicking/knocking sound and is cyclical with wheel/driveline rotation/speed and would be...

it sure sounds like wheel bearings, however, the clicking/knocking sound is more related to the cv joints.
If the spindle nut was loose, it would account for a knocking sound/feel as well. Have the bearings checked before you spend crazy amounts on cv joints.

Replaced brake shoes and had drums turned when installed the right rear brake stated to make a clicking sound when brakes are applied. The sound is consistant with the speed you are going when you apply...

you need to inspect your backing plates for grooves in the pads where the brake shoes contact the backing plate. during a break job these spots are supposed to be lubed with proper non grease brake backing plate lube. some people use never sieze compound... also make sure brake shoes were installed correctly having the primary and secondary shoe correctly in it's place, if you have grooves in your backing plates then the shoes will bounce up and down as they move across the groves this will make a clicking noise, also have seen cracked brake drums make noise... give close inspection with wheels off , if you can jack rear of car off ground support with jack stands , chalk front wheels , then remove wheels on both sides but use a lug nut to hold brake drum on securley, now have someone watch and listen and watch as you let wheels spin under power of engine at low rpm , inspect and watch for possible clues...please rate my help, thanks...

When I apply the brakes I get a ''knocking'' noise from the front

this is a matter of knowing a little bit about your car, maybe a cv joint but I will gamble a little on the brake pads, when you apply the brakes they move inside the caliper and thats the noise you hear, try it on reverse, if it does the same thing check your blake pads.
