Clunk when breaking

Anyone experienced or know what it could be, when applying my brake I heard this CLUNK sound. It seems to be coming from the drivers side(front). I had replaced my calipers and pads about 2 months ago.

Make sure the caliper is not loose from the carrier. or make sure your carrier isn't loose as well.

I had a similar issue. It ended up being a broken/split FCAB.
