84' C10 Caliper Rattle

The front left caliper just will not shut up! Going down a nice smooth highway there's not a peep out of it but the instant I hit the county blacktop or the gravel roads it's rattle city. I can definitely tell it's coming from the left, and as soon as I tap the breaks it goes away until I let off of them.

I took the wheel off of there about a month ago and checked over the tie-rod ends, wheel bearing, and the caliper. Nothing seemed out of place at all so I guess it's just the break pads rattling, despite them having the rattle clips.

Any ideas?

The outside pads top ears need bent down so the pad is tight in the caliper.
