brake pad problem, and front drive shaft problem

Jeeps been making some sort of noises from the front left of it.
1.)One noise is coming from the left brake caliper, so i took if off yesterday and one of the pads just fell out after messing with it for a second. The clip that holds it in just randomly broke off. I wouldn't think this happens often. And the other pad is cracked in half. Any ideas?
2.)Had my front drive shaft out for a few months until i got my front axle geared to match the back. When i put it back in the drive shaft started making a sound when it rotates. Would this be because it needs new u-joints? it made no noises before being taken out.
