Low speed clacking is pissing me off!

Jacked em up to have a look.
The brake shoe is slapping around in caliper.
The more it wears, the more loose it becomes from tapered stamping design.

Regarding noises from the front brakes: if you still have problems, you can "glue" the pads with a little silicon RTV to the caliper. I often saw this as a tip for granada brakes, which are the same design than our mustang brakes.
