Default Front end clicking

Why is the front end making a clicking noise when I'm backing out of a spot or pulling into one slowly?

brake hardware kit (fitment kit).

This is normal for the floating design of Toyota brakes.

search for it in this forum.

Agreed! Dont get fooled by the mechanics that it could be your control arm, ball joints etc etc. First try the cheapest method. Get a new fitting & shim kit. Make sure it's OEM. Grease it well using mp3 grease or any brake grease and you'll not hear that annoying sound again. I know it because I had the same problem

Thanks so much y'all. I just did brakes and they are new and fine plus It occurred prior to brake replacement. So I'm leaning towards control arm etc.
