Clicking/snapping noise when braking at slow speeds or in park

My 05 jeep has developed a sort of clicking when depressing and releasing the brake pedal sometimes at low speeds or when parked. Its a manual so its not the PRNDL switch, I think I can hear it in the rear brakes (which were adjusted/cleaned 10k ago, 68k on the jeep now)

I can also sometimes feel it in the brake pedal. I was thinking obviously brake related, although sometimes I think it could be some sort of u-joint issue as well.

Im not too experienced with drum brake systems, so I would like to hear everyones opinion on where to start looking/what may be the cause.

Climb under there and pull on the driveshafts, any movement and its a bad u joint.

If you can feel it in the pedal, chances are its not the rear drum cause the feeling wouldn't be transmitted via the brake lines. It wouldn't hurt to pull the rear drum off and investigate, the only thing that can be causing noise there would be if the springs got broken and you don't need to be a mechanic to see that. Is the parking brake operating normally?
It maybe a problem with the pedal. Look and see where it attaches to the master plunger and make sure you didn't have a pin fall out or anything. FYI the master plunger goes through the firewall to your brake pedal, so you'll be looking inside the jeep near you feet.

Thanks for the advice, should I pull on them in and out or twist to check for movement?

You should be able to feel a very small amount of turning which is normal. Although no up/down movement.

Upon further investigation, it seems the sound is coming from the rear brakes perhaps, sound is consistent with speed. It only starts after driving awhile. Has anyone experienced this?

Time to open them up. I have had broken springs in the past. Something may be broken and and moving around in there.

Mine just started doing this. I can hear a slight click....click.....click with each tire revolution as I'm braking at slower speeds. Whether I'm applying the brakes via the pedal or e-brake makes no difference. I'm going to pull the drums today (everything new a few hundred miles ago) and see what I can find. Did you ever determine what the problem was?
