2001 Toyota Tundra Question: ticking in the front end only when brakes are applied

My 2001 toyota tundra makes a ticking noise in the front end when it is running and in gear, (only when the brakes are applied.) If you let off the brakes the noise dissappears what could the noise be? I just had the oil changed and the differential fluid changed as well. It wasn't making the noise before. Please help.

    Its impossible to guess without being able to experience the sound first hand and do some basic diagnostic test. It is most likely related to the pads or a brake pad shim that has become displaced. Changing the oils is most likely unrelated.
