When moving the steering wheel? Or when the steering wheel is turned and you are moving? If when turning the steering wheel, it is most likely a problem in the steering rack. If while the car is moving, it is most likely a CV Joint.

See if you hear the noise while sitting still and moving the steering back and forth.

Bad CV joint. Look for the ripped one on the side you hear the noise from.

I've replaced everything else, that's all that's left. I just didn't figure it was something so simple
