The metallic clicking noise ONLY happens when the steering wheel is turned. One click when turned left and one click when turned right. Noticable when car is not moving (with window down or standing outside of car and other driver), or at slow speed from stop and only when steering wheel is moved ie; backing out or driveway or turn a corner from a stop. It appears to be coming from the driver's side behind the front wheel. Perhaps from the steering rack?
I also had the front disks resurfaced about a year ago. They were within specs after machining. Could there be a loose pad or backing plate? These are original brakes and sufficient pad material still exists. This was my company car I bought with 72K miles, mostly highway. What do you think?
