Noise when turning and accelerating

Hello everyone! I have a 99 Subaru Legacy Wagon with just over 196,000 miles in it. Over the past few days I have had a noise coming out of what seems to be my right front wheel. It is a clicking sound that increases with speed, and is only when I turn and have my foot on the gas. Other than the noise there seems to be no other symptoms. any ideas???

Have your mechanic check the CV joint on that axle, as that is the most likely source of the noise.

@VDCdriver Agree, the ticking sound is a dead give away of CV joint problems.

Awesome guys. I really appreciate the advise!

Replace the other CV joint as well, if it has the same number of miles on it.

Use genuine Subaru axleshafts or EMPI axleshafts
