After you rotated the tires, did the issue stay on the right front? If so, then there'* likely an alignment, wheel bearing or ball joint issue.

Also check the inner joint boot on the axle. If it is ripped and all of the grease is gone it will eventually start shaking and or groaning unlike the outer side that clicks while turning when worn.
