Question ticking from front passenger

okay guys i have a weird one here... i have a ticking coming from the front passenger wheel area. it is the same volume no matter the speed. even if i'm below 5 mph. at speed it sounds like a card in spokes of a bicycle kinda, just not as fast obviously. it's on rotation so the faster i go the more it clicks. now heres the kicker. it's only when the wheel is straight or in any degree to the left... whats going on here?!?!

You sure there isn't a screw or something in your tire?

Check your cv joints, the metal band that holds the rubber ends on could have come lose? just a thought

they make cv rebuild kits if just the boot is torn. but if it's been that way for a while things can get pretty bad in there and you might have to get it replaced.

If the boot is torn just anticipate a new cv... It may not be bad now, but it doesn't take much for a little contamination to make a problem. And those bands are ****ing expensive, I know when i had my magical axle misadventure those damn things were like $15...

The CV boot will be torn, my guess would be outer, and there will be the grease from hell visible.

^^ this happened to my drivers side cv. Honestly, I haven't replaced it yet. I know the boots are cheap, but what can I expect to pay to get it replaced?

It's not. generally I find it easier to just buy a replacement axle. Taking apart the inside of the CV is a pain in the ass, it's not super hard, but just messy and a pain.
