Default clicking when turning / in trails

K I DON'T know if this belongs hea but hear it goes... about 2 months ago I noticed a clicking when I attempted to turn the wheel all the way to the right . Just one very loud CLICK . So I wiggled the tires and found my inner tie rods wer shot changed them the very next day and its still there !!!!! The tire ( drivers side ) still wiggles and clicks when you turn it!!! I have also notice this when I have heavy wheel articulation it will click and sound like the wheel is going to fall off! If anyone has ever encountered this please help me !!!! It really scares me and I have no clue as to what it is !!!

check all your ball joints and wheel bearings up front. im guessing that you have a 4x4? if so check the front drive shafts and the boots on them. basically check to maek sure everything is tight on the suspension (shocks, a-arms, springs, innner pannels, etc). i know it sounds stupid to ask, but do your tires hit anywhere? could they be hitting the inner pannels?

Replaced them along with the upper control arms a couple months ago.. what originally happened is i put wheel spacers on and it obliterated my front end I replaced almost everything up there ( and took the spacers offlol ) and its not a grinding its more of a pop . you can feel it in the floor boards and steering wheel

Jack the truck up on that side and grab the tire at 12 and 6 and try to rock it. If it moves then you need the new hub/bearing assembly. Providing the ball joints are new/good still.

I just replaced the hub/bearing assembly on my 2001 and it was somewhere around $150-180..

K it didn't move at all up or down... left to right a lil but no up & down... I have also noticed a vibration at around 65-70 but when I jerk the wheel to the right it goes away for a brief second... I tried it to the left and the vibration is still there .... and everything under there is tight! I did notice that the drive shafts to each wheel did go back and forth a little when I tugged on them but I believe this to be normal .. somebody help !!!!!!!
