Brakes making a Popping/Clicking noise help

Going slow speeds less than 5 mph and apply the brakes they make a popping or clicking noise. I trying to figure out the problem it happens on turns but it only happens when going slow and I can only hear it if the radio is off.

I heard that this is common with this IS model; as I was alarmed when i first heard it too. But it seems that this is due to the "floating calipers" within the brakes.. So it's normal

Carry on and good Luck!

Maybe the wear tabs on the brake pads??? How old are the pads? could be ready to change.

floating caliper definitely has something to do with this but please look into a lubricate to place behind the pad ask your local dealer they did mine still under warranty work was done back in 04 havent had a problem with it since not a daily driver 01 MSM E-shift with LSD please dont accept that the noise is normal because that is bullshit no brakes should pop like that believe me i dealt with the problem for many months thinking it was NORMAL ROLL TIDE !!!!!!!

It is normal. You notice it most when you go from reverse to forward. The pads are just moving a little in the caliper. No big deal.
Recently I just new Hawk pads in my front and they fit very tightly. The clicking is gone but now I get a slight squeal only when turning left. I think the pads are too tight so don't move enough.
Clicking or squealy, I prefer clicking.
Lubing the pads should stop the clicking temporarily.

I'm having the same problem here. That pdf seems like it's for '90-'00 models. I have an 03, shouldn't they fix this already?
