My truck has recently started making a clicking noise sometimes when I am turning tightly for things like parrallel parking. It doesn't always do it, but it seems like the sound is coming from the front-left tire.

I was wondering what the cause of the problem is? The potential cost of repair? And the necessity?

I am thinking maybe it is the wheel bearing. Someone also told me it can come from cutting the steering wheel all the way to the limit, something I often do.

Thanks for any help.

Could be the wheel bearing. Or more likely a bad cv joint. Wheel bearing is easy to check jack up vehicle and check for playment on the spindle. Cv joint not so easy. Check for oil/grease leakage or tears on the boots.
