Best Answer

You'll get clacking whenever you turn...especially at full turn, slow speed. You'll get a light knock as the vehicle coasts wheich will get worse until the joint fails altogether. If there's grease, you should be able to see if the boot OS cracked. Pry the ridges apart on the black ridged boot covering the joint and you'll see if it needs changing or not. If there's cracks, then dirt and water has gotten in and destroyed the joint.

If a bearing is bad, You will hear a whining noise from the bad bearing. Try to listen if it is up front or back. The noise will get louder as you go faster. Turn left and right to determine what side the bad bearing is on. If you turn left and the noise gets louder, the right bearing is bad, turn right and the noise gets louder, the left bearing is bad.

RHS front wheel bearing I would say or RHS CV joint, examine the rubber booths on all cv joints and if yhey are dry they are ok, if they are grease spattered this means that there is a fractured booth and centrifical force will throw the grease out and the cv joint runs without grease thus wearing the ball and socket cv joint. If the boots are dry put some glycerene on a rag and rub into them this keeps them supple and won't crack This could also be a bad wheel bearing. Wheel bearings, when bad, are known to only make noise at certain times, such as when turning.
