Rattle from front left tire area

We've got a rattle coming from the front left side... somewhere near the wheel area and i'm not sure what it could possibly be to start troubleshooting.

New to Tacos.

It sounds like there's a bag of those metal bottle caps rattling around. It typically only happens when going over bumps of any sort... i'd like to get this figured out so we can fix it before anything else goes wrong.

What could it be? Tie-rod end? Ball joint?

I know it's kind of a vague description, but i'm not sure what to look for and what to inspect. But it's definitely coming from the tire/hub area.

I've checked the metal hub thing on the wheel that protrudes out but it's not loose.

Sounds like its the Brakes. They are free floating and "clack" when stopping, bumped etc. How new is the ride?

The ride is great. It's nice having a reliable rig. It'll be even better once we get some Bilsteins under there though.

So how hard are brakes to replace? Only done it on a Cherokee. That would make sense though because we do have some brake pulling too and they definitely need to get replaced.
