Brakes catching or other clunk a few feet from when I roll away from a stop

My basically stock 05 EX 4x4 makes a clunk that I can feel as if the calipers are catching and the clunk is them releasing.

New pads, rotors, brake hardware and still the same issue. Now I have some brake squeal with the new pads and rotors.

Check your u-joints. Both Driveshafts and axles.

What brand pads and rotors?

I had this issue with my Excursion about a year or so ago. Like you , I thought is was the brakes. Turns out it was the slip joint in the rear driveshaft. When I took the driveshaft off, I could barely get the two ends apart. I separated them, greased the splines really well and the problem went away.

Remember, mark the shaft before taking it apart. It needs to go back together the same way or it will be out of phase and you will have vibrations.
