Re: clicking noise while turing ??? (bigger dub)

Try and do a search. I know a lot of people have had a similar problem. My car used to clunk when I made a turn and went from a stop, but I'm not sure if my 'clunk' is the same as your 'click.'

there goes your CV joint, if you turn right does it make noise at the left or left turn noise on right? where ever you turn it, it shifts the weight to that wheel.

I have the same problem, but it's more of a clunk when I turn left (only about 25% of the time). Didn't have it before we had to drop my subframe and put it back in. I think something settled funny
Have been meaning to take a peek, but haven't yet. Hope someone has a good possible reason for it

when im in the car it sounds like its coming from the steering wheel... but when i put down the window it sounds like its coming for the left side of the car... and it doesnt make a noise when i turn right

I have heard this from a tie rod end or a CV shaft. Hope this helps. Good luck.

It sounds like your CV boot is blown, get it fixed asap so you don't have to replace the whole joint. Also, if you procrastinate your steering will eventually go out on you!

The boot itself should roughly be around $40. You're better off to do the replacement yourself if at all possible; labor will rape you!

it's your right outer (outboard) CV joint.
