clicking in he front end when braking

So I bought a 99 and it is in pretty good shape but there is this clicking noise in the front end with moderate braking. I pulled the wheels and brakes apart as I was told that the backing plate on the brake pads could be loose causing he clicking noise. this was not he issue, brakes are 90% and nothing wring with them. also, it does not do it when in reverse. Any ideas? and thanks ahead for the help.

Never dally in the valley unless the wild flowers are smellin sweet........

If it was me I would make sure there isn't a loose bolt in the brakes or control arms or track bar first. I had the exact same issue a click on the right and left. took forever to figure it out. thought it was a bushing which was blown, thought it was the brake pads. In the end I did an akebono upgrade after my rotors warped and it was gone. I heard that it could be a sticky caliper, but to tell the truth the akebono's are so much better than the original front calipers that I wouldnt bother trying to fix the teves or replace them with rebuilt.
