    63000 miles on the original brakes. Should they be changed soon? I dont know if it is them making noise, its kinda like a clank, sorta like they are sticking sometimes, usually I can only replicate the noise when I just start the vehicle from sitting still with the parking brake on for the length of time it takes for the engine temp to get cold. It may clank once pulling outa my driveway and then again pulling onto the state road. The only other time the sound has happened is going off the state road onto my paved sub-division road, there is about a 1" drop in pavement level.

    could this be my brake pads sticking?
    could it be the parking brake cable sticking
    could it be the uniballs on the TC UCA's or the bushings being frozen on them?

    thanks for the input.
