Clunking noise only under light braking

Hey all, on my 99 sahara, i get a clunking sound only under light braking, not while cruising, and not under heavy braking. checked brakes they look good, rotors are not cracked, there are no big rust hunks touching the tell tales or anything, its very odd. it does not matter if i am turning or just going straight either. Specifically under only light braking, any thoughts??
Its definitely in the front end and wont do it if i only yank on the emergency brake. Oh, and its a clunk clunk clunk until i get on the brakes harder or let off them, not just one clunk like a ball joint etc may do. Weird.

check the caliper bracket. it might have some slop in it. could possibly be a bearing as well.

jack up your jeep. make 100% sure the noise it coming from the wheel areas. i've seen driveshafts make goofy noises while on the brakes before.
