Re: Clicking noise from driver tire

Did you check the drive shaft CV boot for being cracked? If it is, it most probably threw all grease out and and with dirt getting in it will be destroyed soon.
Maybe you can't hear it when driving, because other noises (engine noise and road noise) can overshadow it.
Is there any change in the noise when making a turn? Could eventually be a wheel bearing or even a front propeller shaft joint which is getting bad.

I checked the boots and no cracks or rips and you hear the same noise even when turning it does get a little harder to turn though

Re: Clicking noise from driver tire

Maybe best is to jack the front up and rotate the wheel by hand and feel the CV joints for play.
