Exclamation Clicking Noise in the front left wheels while turning!

I have a clicking noise in my front drivers side wheel area while turning right.. I replaced the front axle shaft u-joints and upper and lower ball joints about a month ago.

Any other ideas of what is causing this noise? It's driving me nuts.

Could be anything, tie rod, control arm, bushings, knuckle, ball joint, wheel bearing...my best guess would be a bad u-joint even though you just replaced them

dont overlook caliper slide bolts or their respective bushings, they can really make a lot of clicking noise when worn out.

Ill check for bearing play sometime this week. I really hope I figure it out. I'm sick and tired of hearing it click.. and just so y'all know the clicking is not my turn signal. Lol

I have a clicking noise in that same area. It is the track bar drop bracket. One of the bolts was loose and it is clicking on the bolt thread. I don't know if yours is lifted or if you have a track bar drop bracket. But it's something else to check.

Mine had the clicking noise twice and both times it was wheel bearings.
