I had a similar noise about 18 months ago and went to my local Sealership. I told them to check the front swaybar as I read this was common source of this type of noise. I picked the car up in the afternoon and they said they couldn't find the noise and bring it back if it get worse. Bloody hopeless! I drove the car home crawled under the front of the car and unbolted one of the lower sway bar link rods. As soon as it was loose i found the problem. The nut on the ball joint at the top end of the sway bar link rod was loose. It just needed a 1/4 of a turn on the nut to tighten it, the joint didn't rattle any more. That hollow clunk noise had disappeared. Simple, quick and cheap fix. That was the second last time I ever went to the Stealership
I had a horrible clunking sound in my right front wheel, 2010 Commander, so I pulled the tire and found that my caliper mount bolts were backed out almost half way. I had the brakes serviced about 4k miles ago(63000 miles on it now). Well, i just grabbed some thread locker and re-torqued all four calipers and the clunking noise naturally stopped. I'm glad the caliper didn't come off as it would've been a missile flying around down there!!!! Thank goodness it was an easy fix!!!
I had my sway bar bushings and links replaced. Tightened it up some, but did not solve the rattle over bumps. I have noticed now that it doesnt rattle with brakes applied. Must be my calipers. Can I tighten? Is there a clip that might be missing?

where the pads ride on the knuckle can become quite grooved and worn from never having any hard ware what I did was throw some weld in the low spots and then grind them back down flat and smooth I work at a garage and yes once in a while brakes will cause some noise issues like you are describing good luck
Had a "clunk" noise in the front tire area after a front brake job (my first). After reading this forum I double checked the caliper bolts. Those suckers just needed turned another 1/4 of turn and the noise went away. Sort of crazy the noise those things can make by not being completely tightened down.
I've got a rattling sound that seems to coming from the left front wheel area. Poking around down there I noticed the caliper seemed to be loose and rattled when I shook it. Tried to tighten the mounting bolts and one of them tightens down some but then just keeps on turning and never snugs down all the way. Guessing something in the slide pin/bracket is worn/stripped? If I order a new bracket does anyone know if the slide pins, boots, etc are installed? All of the pictures of the brackets looks like just the metal bracket itself. Not really sure exactly how slide pins work, hadn't ever heard of them until earlier today when I was searching for parts.
