Default Clicking noise in front right

Need some help, I get a clicking noise which seems to becoming from the right front side everytime i turn or brake sharply. The clicking noise mostly happens when im turning. I recently replaced the CV axles because thats what i thought the problem was but it seems thats not the problem. Its a 2001 4X4. Any help guys?

Did you look at all four pads? One could be down from a bad brake caliper. Did you lube up the guide pins good when you did the last brake job or when the caliper was last taken off??

CV axle may be worn and needs to be replaced. If it is the CV Axle, and it didn’t wear because of a torn boot, i’d replace both sides.
