Did you check the brake pad springs, they might be missing or broken allowing the pad to rattle in the holder.

no they are ok almost new caliper. must be suspension or steering since it happens when hit a bump. something is pretty loose somewhere. i'm having trouble finding it. 2.6 engine, manual transmission, auto hub 4x4.

it's up front somewhere. wondering if it could be transfer case,a mount, drivetrain or maybe cv axle?

check your sway bar bushings. they will do this very thing.

How about shock bushings?

sway bar has new bushings, Right shock is new. Left shock seems ok.
