Brakes clicking?

its hard to explain but every once in a while at sudden stops, my breaks will make a click or crack kind of sound. it only happens for a split second and i dont notice any braking problems but this worries me. i have my calipers painted but i doubt this would cause any problems. maybe its not even my brakes at all but the sound comes when i hit the brakes. any ideas?

Is it when your going really slow and brake...like in a drive through or coasting through a parking lot?

Isn't that just your anti-lock brake-system?
It detects your wheel blocking and releases the brake a bit, causing the clicking/rattling sound

also, if you want, you can buy the grease (I think and do it yourself, it is supposed to last 6-12 months grin

My car makes a lot of strange noises. At any given time while driving, there is atleast 1-2 weird noises that I hear coming from my car.

wow so thats what that noise is i figured it was ok but i guess theres a TSB 4 it. question though would it do any kind of damage if i dont get it serviced i mean its too much of a hassle just to get the clicking sound off
