Knocking noise when I begin to brake

I have an 04 Tj with a 4 inch rough country suspension and a 3 inch body lift. I already know the body lift needs to come off and that rough country is by far not top of the line but when I start to slow down there is a clicking/knocking noise... Any ideas guys? Thanks..

Is it repetitive or does it just knock once?

I had something like this that would only happen when slowing down and I pushed in the clutch. Turned out to be my front driveshaft. So maybe check the u-joints in the front and back shaft Mine was a repetitive knock/clunk that was speed related.

Yea, need more info here man.

Speed related, RPM related, happen in neutral or not, same in every gear, 4hi, hardness of braking = louder sound, etc.

That'll help tons.

Only happens when slowing down while breaking... I have an automatic and it is a repetitive knocking clicking sound... Doesn't seems to
Sound different if I brake harder maybe a tad bit
