Front Brake Pad Rattle

I've noticed that my front brake pads rattle in their calipers. I notice it especially if I brake after changing direction at slow speeds ie. reverse out of my garage. I've checked and everything seems to be assembled correctly, pin, retaining clip etc.

Does anybody have an idea on how to solve this?

Thanks

James

Vibration shims

I came across those whilst searching the net, but couldn't find any for a 98 Boxster.

Do you know if you get them for a 98 Boxster?

The pads are brand new Brembos. I changed them about a month ago, and maybe they have 1000km on them at most. I seem to remember the old ones doing the same.
