Icon4 Noise From Front Left Wheel

Ok. I finally got my truck totally fixed from the accident I was involved in. Cost me about $1100. So I have had the truck for about 3 weeks now since it was fixed and I just got another problem. When I hit the brakes, I hear a clicking noise coming from the front left of the truck. It sounds like it is coming from the wheel hub, but not sure. When I hit the brakes, it clicks, and when I totally stop, it makes a very loud clicking sound. I went to an autoparts store, they told me it was a PV Joint, PC Joint, I am not sure? Can anyone help me please?

I had a problem that did that but mine turned out to be an ABS problem. The clicking was coming from the ABS module. I didnt have a code or anything but it would click really loud. I checked the ABS sensors and changed the rear one and it never did it again.

I noticed mine was clicking/clunking. I looked near the brake caliper and noticed that it wasn't even tight.
