Knocking Noise When Reversing/braking

Im getting a knock every now and then, not sure where exactly it just sounds beneath me.

I first noticed it when reversing and then braking. It sometimes knocks when braking normally (ie going forwards) but mostly when reversing then pulling fowards.

Did a little searching on here and saw it could be a stone or something? I was worried it might be something more serious but any thoughts would be appreciated as usual.

Btw it only ever knocks once, it doesnt keep knocking

Cheers

Common problem....if you can call it a problem...the brake pads are naturally pushed in the direction of rotation of the wheel when going forward so when you brake you dont get a knock...when you reverse the pads move in the caliper and knock when they hit the back (only slight movement, less than a mm)

shims should ba available from MrT to help prevent this.

cheers mate, apparently civics are bad for it and it think avensis's.

can you get a 1mm shim? can it do any damage other than to my sanity?
