Question Brake caliper rattle F350

I have an F350 SD 4X4 Off Road crew cab V10 with an annoying rattle in front brake calipers. How do I fix the problem?

you'll probably have better luck in the super duty or diesel forum...

Unless a mount bolt is loose I can't imagine the caliper causing your rattle.
If you're checking out the calipers, make sure to clean and lube the slide pins. If they bind up you'll end up with uneven braking or warped rotors.

You might want to check your front shock mounting. I had a rattle coming from one of the front shock lower mounts. Snugged it up and no more rattle.

What year is the truck? Some of the earlier ones had a known issue with swaybar end links rattling. I believe there was a TSB from Ford on this.

I've read up a bit more on my rattle. I've concluded that it's not my brake calipers.
The noise persists when the brakes are applied lightly. I will check all rubber mounted linkages as suggested. I just bought the truck 2 weeks ago and this rattle is it's only defect.
