What kind of noise will be made if the front right half shaft seal is bad and there is grease everywhere?

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.

Check the CV Joints both inner and outer. Probally a boot has failed and the joint has loss all grease.

It might be a CV joint, when the CV boot is ripped and the grease is partly gone , then it makes noise.
