Default Brakes...2 questions

I've got a serious rattle in my passenger front wheel. My friend said it was the brake caliper bracket, so we changed it. A month later it's rattling again. Any idea what it could be? Also, I just changed rotors and pads last year.

Question two: My plan is to have the rotor turned, replace the pads and replace the caliper bracket again. I can take it all apart no problem but do you guys have any input on putting it back together? What do I need to make sure that I don't miss? I would just volunteer him to do it but he's on vacation this week and I need to get it done ASAP because I'm tired of it sounding like my wheel is going to fall off.

Im not sure if the brake setups on the cars are anything like the dodge rams, but when I had my dodge ram apart I had these little metal type pieces that were basically sandwiched in between the caliper and pads mount together......maybe its missing, or loose, that is if it is there to begin with? lol
Id raise the car up and and check your tie rod ends, and see if your hubs are loose, have someone turn the wheel and see if you have a thrown belt in the tire....that's what I would do.

Check tie rods, inner and outer ball joints, an tension struts. Sounds like you have the gift of "front end clunk" this suspension set up likes to give. By all means, don't rule out the brakes either though.

Well my friend that helped me last time works at Firestone, he went over all of the suspension parts because that was my first guess. The only think clinking was that bracket. Some piece of it was moving that shouldn't have been.

Is the rattle consistently present when you are driving or only when you are braking? Do you feel a shudder or some shaking in the steering when you brake? When you jack up that side of the car, can you turn the wheel and recreate the noise? If the rattle started after the brake job, I'd check the bolts that were involved in the brake job first. If you feel a shudder under braking, it could be a bushing but I'd be surprised since the car isn't that old.

Thanks for the offer Back N Black, I won't be at the track for a while. I've been busy helping my boyfriend put his new set up together on his truck. I should be fine on the rotors anyways.

The rattle started WAY after I did the brakes on it. It's the caliper bracket rattling. You can check out every other part up there and that's the one that makes noise. I just don't get what's causing it to "break."

I would check the mounting holes that the caliper bolts to, mabye they are partially stripped out or crossthreaded. If you are abosultely positive the caliper bracket is the noise then I don't see what else it could be. Food for thought.
