    I'm getting a one time click noise down under the front of my truck when coasting along (not in the throttle very much) when I depress the brakes about 1/2 inch??? Has anyone else heard this?

    2009 AC v6 manual...

    Could it be the front caliper(s)?

    Check to make sure there's not a rock between the pads and calipers.

    While it would be best to get a full inspection of the brakes, one click going forward (until you brake in reverse), and one click in reverse (until you brake going fwd), is normal - it's the pads moving in the calipers, nothing to worry about. If it annoys you too bad, I've hear the later pads have tighter clearances to the calipers to help eliminate the clicking.

    Not sure how Taco brakes are set up...but I know on my buddies Ranger and my F-150, as you press the pedal, you can feel the microswitch click to turn the brake lights on.
