Nasty Clunk or Click when i apply brakes

guys have a slight issue with my tacoma its a 2010 4x4 regular cab.

When i am slowing down in neutral or in gear and i apply the brakes it makes a clunk sounds. if i press them again no sound.

if i drive a bit and press them i get a sound.

any ideas?

I have had it in my 06 since i bought it. I had it inspected by 2different dealers and they all say its normal. I replaced my pads thinking that would fix the problem but to no avail, i still have it

This is normal. The pads float very slightly in the calipers. You'll probably notice that it occurs much louder the first time you apply the brakes moving forward after backing up out of a parking spot.

Might not be the case here but I had this happen. Check your lug nuts. I had a tire shop install my wheels after getting new tires and they didnt torque the lugs right and half way home I was getting the same thing. The lugs were torqued in a circle pattern instead of alternating and they hung up in the wheel, when the rim moved it loosened and the rim was slamming the brake disc when i hit the brakes.

out of curiosity OP, why do you slow down in neutral ? You should never drive in neutral, downshift.

It's brake slap. It's harmless, and it's good - it lets you know you're driving a truck, not a Lexus.

I put when slowing down in neutral or in gear,

not that i slow down in neutral i was just trying to get "tranmission issues" out of the way cause if the clutch is not engaged and it still made the noise then it wouldnt be tranmission related

Why is braking while in neutral a bad thing? Last I checked, replacing brake pads is cheaper then replacing the clutch.

OP- It could be the ball joints.

Good information

I hear the click/clunck too. I felt it was probably the brakes, but wasn't sure. As I understand it, my 2004 had the balljoint service bulletin performed in 2010 (balljoints replaced), so if it is the balljoints as noted by others, in my case I'd be surprised. Possible I suppose.

Thanks for the input folks!
