clicking sound

There is a clicking sound coming from front drivers side wheel. I recently just put on new spacers and new tires and wheels. I took the tire off and checked to see if the spacer was on tight and it was. Any suggestions or has anyone had this happen as well?

DO your wheels have a center cap? i have had a loose one make that noise? Could be dust cap coming off also? some simple items to check.

No the boot is in real god shape. Is there something else to look for? the sound is coming from right where it attaches to the wheel.

do you know how old they are? even though the boot is still intact it can still go out.
could be wheel bearings as well, but im not sure on that one. i only have experience with my axels going out and getting the clicking noise.

is it constant and never stops when moving? or only certain times?

dam hiatt beat me

bam, this is what i thought but wasnt sure.

One good way to tell if a wheel bearing is bad is by taking hold of the wheel at 6 and 12 o'clock and attempting to shake it while the wheel is lifted off the ground.

Damn 97yota your good. I appreciate the help greatly and that has to be it because we had it lifted and were getting that wiggle. Thanks a ton and also thank Hiatt. Any idea of how to fix this or how much it will cost to fix?
