So recently I've noticed a clicking noise that seems to be coming from the front drivers side area whenever I apply the brakes. The speed of the clicking depends on how fast I am traveling, meaning the clicks come slower and slower as I come to a stop. I haven't touched my front brakes in over a year, but the pads still look like they have a good amount of life left.

Has anyone else experienced this with their foci? Any brake gurus have any tips? I will be glad to add REP if you happen to help me out!

Are you just looking at the outside pads when you say that the pads look good? The inside pads could be worn if you have a sticky slider. Also kinda sounds like a CV joint.

I agree with dsmuts, check the slider pins first. Dirty or dry ones can cause a pad to drag (not fully release) and cause the noises mentioned. Another cause is a poor quality rotor (metallurgically) which results in poor or uneven bedding. This will, however, usually result in a pulsating effect felt through the brake pedal when stopping.
