inspect the constant velocity joints...perhaps one his worn...and the boot is not torn~

So you are saying after changing right rear brake pads knocking sound when making left turn then you adjust caliper now knocking sound all the time ? Does the knocking go away if brakes are applied ?

Did you apply disc brake quiet to the pads before installing them ?

Knocking sound is not there when you apply the brakes,only from stop to start motion then it goes away and when I make a left turn only,and no i did not apply brakes quiet.

do us a favor and inspect your CV joints fwd there are only four inner and outer...rear brake should have been changed and the parking brake adjusted...but I'm concerned with the drive and axles...the number of miles would cause me to floorjack it up and start lookin'~ just saying the rear brakes are of no concern, unless they are scraping and out of "meat"~ that seems to be another issue~ so axles...look at 'em~ twirl them around and that is where any trouble is going to be at~

Was this knocking sound there before you changed the brake pads ?

No The knocking sound was not there before I change the brake pads, one more thing I remove the bracket for the emergency brake on the problem side,could the be a problem?

Yes recheck everything you did to make sure it is tight and properly installed.

Do this test drive vehicle about 5-10 mph when you hear knocking sound use the emergency brake to stop and see if noise goes away or gets worse this will let you know if you are on the right track.

I did the test, make left turn and use the emergency brake and the knocking went away .
