When braking, I hear a clunking noise. If I am going over 40 mph, it will make the noise when I get to 30 mph. If going between 25 and 30, it will do it when I get to 20 mph. It is consistant and does it every single time. Any idea what this might be?

    sounds like a high or hot spot on a rotor. it comes from overheating the brakes.
    replacing the pads, rotors and making sure the pins and calipers are free.
    have a shop do a brake check and confirm.
