I'll start out by saying that I've only been driving this truck since Friday afternoon so what I'm experiencing may be completely normal as I've never owned a Toyota. Truck is a certified pre-owned 2006 Tundra access cab SR5 4x4 V8 with 46500 miles.

When I apply the brakes, I get a click that seems to be coming from the front end area. I've read other threads about a clicking that comes from the brake light switch, but this seems to be coming from much more forward. I'm thinking it may be along the lines of the pads shifting in the caliper. According to the inspection report the truck had the front rotors turned and the pads replaced. It will not click when pressing the brake pedal at a stop, only when moving and then stopping.

Any other ideas of what to check?

It happens when the pad pins do not have enough brake lube on them and the pad separator spring is weak. Pull the pins, goop a bunch of brake grease on them and in the caliper holes, and replace the pad separator spring.

Could be the bushings on your shocks. My bushings are worn out. I am getting new front shocks.
