    Brake pad rattle?

    Okay - so my 2004 WRX has had a rattle for some time that I've narrowed down to the brakes. When moving say, below 50mph, every tiny bump there's a rattle with it, above 50ish, no rattle.

    So, yes it's the brakes. So what's the fix. I did a search earlier (and today) and recall something about appropriate greasing? ...somehow I couldn't find this today. Or would it be the retention springs? I'd like a little better idea before I dig into this.

    Are the pads needing to be replaced soon ? If so, replace them and new springs and see if it goes away. The pads need to be done anyways.... Springs wouldn't hurt to replace.
