Have you checked you Unit bearing assembly? ( wheel bearings)
I get in lots of mud and have changed mine out twice already. Warm up the bearings and jack it up on the front end and grab the tire on the top and the bottom ,If it has a lot of slack it then you will probably need to change it. Spin the wheel and see if you can hear it clicking.
If it is a bad unit bearing, the one on the other side will be soon to follow.

Clicking noise sounds coming front end when braking, i recently changed the disc pads.

check the cv joints for wear as this is the clicking noise you are hearing. IT is most noticeable under brakes with the engine still in drive or you can hear it when going slow and turning a circle

When driving, have shimming/shaking of truck from 0 to 60 mph

You need to find if your problem is coming from front or rear first.Do a test drive where you can drive at slow speed with no traffic an a good road.At 10 to 15 mph,
notice if the steering wheel is rocking left then right.If itis your problem is in the front wheels,if it doesn't pick up speed to 15 to 20mph,notice whether your back side is rocking left and right,if it does your probable is in the rear wheels.Next is to see the wheels on a spin balancer to check for steel belt shifting in tire or bent wheels.If none of this helps you didn't mention any sounds,but check the u joints
