Default Clicking?

1995 SE

whats up everyone,
my cars been making plenty of weird noises lately but one doesnt sound to safe.


My front left wheel clicks ocassioanly, usually when i take a right turn. Also when i take right turns around corners the wheel gets stuck sort of to the right and you have to give it a good tug to make it go straight again.

Any ideas what this could be?

Start by checking the CV boots on the axle. Any cracks or grease coming out of them? The clicking could be a bad CV joint. Check your tie-rod ends also. Jack up the wheel on each side, then try moving the wheel back and forth...hands at 3 & 9, again at 12 and 6. Check the bolts to the rack and see if they are good and tight. This will give you a start.

You may have a strut mount that is bad. It could be binding and preventing the wheels from turning back all the way
