    Can you be more specific please?

    Does it sound suspension related? Is it a metal on metal sound? Could be a couple of things. The most obvious will be the outer CV joint. Check the rubber gaiter hasn't failed allowing the grease out and dirt in. Another option is a worn tie-rod end, but this is more a 'clunk' on take off rather than 'clicky' noise. Final thing, again suspension related is the coil spring. Check its still intact. Not unusual to lose an inch or so on either end due to stress and corrosion which allows it to flex in the strut assembly. You really need to raise the car, pop the wheel off and take a closer look.

    You're not wrong there! Could be upper arms, in which case you'll need to release the dreaded pinch bolt.

    Useful link here to identify upper arm wear.
