Clicking noise in rear wheel area? Have a listen.

Could be a bad CV joint. How do the boots look & feel?

The boots seem ok, no cracks etc.

Dirt can still be inside, though. Does the noise change as you turn the car, and put stress on different sides/corners?

Still clicks when trying U turn and side to side with no change in noise level. Can't remember off hand how is the boot attached ?

Do you have used longer wheel bolts? If you do, it is possible that the bolt ends hit the handbrake mechanism.

Not sure if the bolts are the originals and did not drive car before putting new pads on, so i do not know if the noise was present before I purchased. I will check but how long should the bolt be?

Ok wheels off and up on stands at idle first gear video's. But still cannot isolate, not sure if it starts in tranny and works to wheel through shaft or maybe CV joints which I know nothing about. It does not seem like pads they are not grabbing and there is not any clicking vibration when I touch the calipers. The noise is more pronounced in passenger wheel. ??

Well it's not the tranny, but the CV Joints inner and outer both sides. They had hardley any grease and when removing the boots found water coming out out of them so I cleaned repacked and reinstalled. Ran through 2-3 gears and no noise so far, but it is still on jacks. The bad thng is it took all day and man was it messy and when I finished I forget to get hand cleaner or should I say body cleaner. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
