Clicking when turning right after cars warmed up and driven for awhile.

Hey everyone! Iíve had my second Evo now for about 6 months. About 3 months ago I started noticing a slight clicking when turning left but mostly right in first after a complete stop, once the car has been driven for a bit. Since having this issue, Iíve had both front tie rods replaced, rack and pinion, and complete coilovers all around, and front cv joint axles driver side and passenger side. I can not figure out what this noise is, thought about bringing it to a dealership just have a diagnosis. My acd light recently came in too and not sure if those are connected. Iím getting my fluids flushed and adding new t case and rear diff on Monday. Please any info or advice or idea as to what this dumb noise please message me or on here. Thank you guys!

Certainly a tough one to diagnose on the boards, but you certainly have had some serious components replaced, as you noted Evo8Guy

Could it be as simple as rubbing dust shields on the rotor up front? They bend easy, especially when mounting / dismounting wheels

You noted, after it warms up. Could it be engine pulley related?

Just a thought.

On another point, 2 posts since 2006. Dont be a stranger. Join us more regularly on the boards

I donít have wheel spacers. And I work at discount tire, Iíve personally taken and mounted my wheels and tires and havenít had an issue with anything brake or wheel related. Engine pulley is an option, but Iíve never heard one that was bad. And itís mainly when I turn right which is odd. Gonna put it on the lift and start it and go through gears while turning the wheels. And yea I was a stranger for a bit lol Iím back for a bit hopefully

I think this is a classic CV joint failure symptom. I'd probably start there.


EDIT NM read that you already replaced those, next guess since your having acd light issues maybe something to do with the front diff.

Wheel bearings?

More far out: cracked wheel?

I had a clicking noise when turning right several years ago... ...it was the wheel bearing starting to go bad. The tech kept saying it couldn't the bearing, but after trying several other things I told him go ahead and change the left bearing anyway. Solved the issue.

Iím going to do an inspection and find out whatís going on, it does it when itís a left or right turn once warmed up, and Iím also thinking maybe something with the gearbox? When I push the clutch in a slight noise goes away.
