Hey,

When I am driving and go to slow down, maybe 3-4 seconds after i hit the brakes I hear a loud TICK sound come from the rear. What might cause this? Something with the calipers maybe? thanks.

it's like a click, sounding like something maybe loose.

could be a caliper clip loose. is it happening while braking? or just slowing down using gravity and friction to slow the car down.

I'd check suspension arms and suspension bushings. that would be my first guess.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Sounds to me like the calipers are sticking. I would check the cylinders. they probly need replacing. they are like 60 bux or something.
