Default Clicking Noise While Turning

Hello,

I seem to have a clicking noise when I make Right turns with throttle. It seems to only click when im taking a preety decent right hand turn and I give it gas in the corner.I can kinda feel it threw the gas pedel, Any ideas on what this may be?

I origanaly thought "CV joint" cause I had to replace one of those on my last car and it cliked when I turned. However, I remeber it clicking even when i turned without using the throttle.

On a side note what are some highly recommended Suspension upgrades for a 2002 WRX sedan? Am I far off for thinging...

Not including wheels

First .. F+R sway bars w/ endlinks
Second... Brake upgrades
Thirds.. some kind of coilover or somthing

Natrually you can tell I havent really started my Suspension research but thats really not the purpose of this thread

Well i took it to the shop and the mecahnic told me that the boot was not torn and its holding grease perfectly fine so they did not replace the Axel.

Is it possible the joint could be damaged without a torn boot?

What clicking noise could i be hearing on a hard right turn that sounds almost identicle to a cv joint?

I once had a loose brake line clicking against my strut during tight turns. I mistook it as a CV problem but when I secured the line, the clicking went away. Also, if your endlink is loose it can cause a clicking noise.

when i installed my coilovers i didn't secure my brake lines too good and it was more of a "slapping" noise then anything. I just had my cv boots replaced last week, but they didn't make noise. The only way it could be your cv joint is if there is grease around the inside of your wheel or around the boots because it got torn, but if they are not torn, then its not your cv joints. Take your wheel off and look around and "feel" for grease and such. There have been a lot of people who go years without replacing them without damaging bearings, i guess it all depends.
