clicking in my front end!?

my dad drives a 08 ranger v6 automatic and says theres a clicking sound that is very loud when he turns from his front end. i have not been able to replicate the sound but he says its there. i looked under the truck all the boots look fine, rack and pinion is in great shape the things new still. i was thinkin maybe wheel bearings? any ideas would help. thanks!

If your truck is 4WD it's possible it could be the front drive line. It's made like a CV joint and can make noises when worn. Also the front wheel bearings that press into a small hub need to be replaced. I've got 339k on mine and been through 2 sets.

Check the front suspension over. Sway bar links, tie rod ends, ball joints, cv axles, wheel bearings. these could all cause turning noise
