Noises after brake job

So i just did a break job over the weekend and when I am driving and go over any kind of bump it sounds like the brake pads are loose. I made sure i tightened everything back up when putting it back together and now i cannot figure out what i did wrong any thoughts or suggestion on what to fix? I am also hearing a noise when i turn the truck to the right. it sounds like metal rubbing not a brake rub. Again any suggestions would be great

Did you reinstall the metal pad shims/anti-rattle clips?

Did you do front and back?

Could be the e-brake shoes in the rear.

How much did Midas charge for the job? I've had my TB for 57,000 miles & I'm still on the same pads, but I think I hear sing's of wear....
