I had seen some posts a while back regarding the rear brake clattering..here is an explanation :

The "clattering" sound that you hear when you apply the rear brakes is a
normal side affect of the drivetrain design. It is the gear lash between the
rear diff and the front diff. Since the front drive cannot be disengaged,
the drive shafts at both ends flex slightly and momentarily store some of
that rebounding enrgy like a spring. As that energy is released it transfers
to the driveshaft at opposite end and the unloaded gears clatter.

The whole oscillation starts because the rear braqke is on the driveshaft
itself and there is nothing in the system to buffer all that energy as you
stop. The clattering only happens when stopping with the rear brakes
