    Good chance you have a CV joint on it's way out. If it does it mostly in a turn it's likely an outer joint (at the wheel).

    Sounds like a C.V. joint, check C.V.boots under front end see if they are torn because they are packed with grease. If boots are torn they will loose the grease and become axle could become worn and make a clicking noise when turn steering. SNOWANDICEMAN

    I agree with B&B. I just replaced my left front. It was only &59 for the whole cv axle and goes real fast. Took me under 20 min.
