Are you sure it isn't the CV axle? I think that's what it's called anyway...???

We need a better description of the noise... a CV axle will bind and pop if it is bad, but I wouldn't personally describe that as a "click"

A ratcheting-clicking noise on turns=bad cv. The worse it is, the louder it gets.

Does it click going straight or only when turning. I had a CV joint go bad on my 93 Toyota 4x4 and it clicked only when turning.

I think I had/have the same thing. I didn't notice it so much in turns, but it would get faster the faster you went. Then when you slowed down the noise slowed down frequence untill you were almost at a stop and you could count the ticks, then once you stop the ticks stop. On mine it came from I think the drivers side. It seemed to go away when I put my 5100s on. I don't really notice it any more.
