Rattle going over bumps sometimes...anti-rattle clips in the front calipers?

I've had this noise for a while now, but now its really starting to annoy the shit out of me. Nothing is loose in the front end....and I've never had and brake work done to the car...it has 7400 miles on it. From what I've searched for and other sites, the consensus seems to be these anti-rattle clips. I THINK i've fond them on the caliper...should they move back and forth about 1/16th onf an inch...could this be my problem?

Easy way to tell if its coming from those clips is drive the car with the windows down so you can clearly hear the noise, slowly but firmly apply the brakes. If the noise stops when you apply the brakes, its most likely the clips.

The problem is I have to be going over 30mph and the bump has to be something like a level change in concrete, or a crack in pavement. It happens so quick.

What else could it be?

I really dont know, its hard to say without hearing the noise myself. Im sure if i were to see the car in person I would be able to track down where its coming from, other than that I would just check other components such as suspension.
