    Have you just had your brakes done? If so, it could be that metal clip that holds the pads in, thats installed backwards.

    Off the sub, I see that your sig says that you have a MRM WS6....
    WS6's never came in that color from the factory.

    A small stone lodged in the tread will make a clicking noise -- exactly like you have described.

    the axle could be bent causing the caliper to move alot. is the problem in the front or rear?

    I heard a cracked brake pad could make that noise too, I had the noise on mine but it went away. I'm too afraid to look now
