2001 Toyota Tundra front wheel clicking noise

I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra with 179,000 miles. I hear a clicking noise on the front wheel, drivers side. Could this be a cv axel going bad.

Yes, sure could. especially at 179K miles. Find a nice deserted parking lot and drive in circles and weaves. A failing CV will make more noise in a turn. Have a helper listen outside the truck so you don’t get fooled into thinking it is the driver’s side when it actually is the passenger side.

Thanks for the info. Any idea how much labor and parts might cost for the drivers side CV axle replacement?
