When I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left while I'm doing a Uturn or getting out of a parking space, there's a noise coming from the front passenger side wheel area that makes me think of something being cinched, one turn at a time-it's not a clicking sound but it has a click-click-click rhythm to it. Also, sometimes when pulling into a parking lot and the wheels are turned while I go into a dip and up, I hear a sound that's like a ball being hit into a tin can-wierd. Someone that just looked at the car, said the caliper needs to be replaced and the drum(s) are loose but it seems to be more than just that. I'm wondering if this could be a wheel issue and not just a brake component?

First of all thank you so much for your donation. The drums are loose?The drums are always loose the wheel and lug nut's hold it tight in place. Do they really mean that your rear brake's are out of adjustment?As far as the noise goes that's a tough one are any of your cv boot's torn and slinging grease?I would all so go threw and make sure all your front end bolts are tight. Your sub frame bolt's ball joint nut's tie rod nut's make sure your ball joint's tie rod's and front wheel bearing's are good. Check all your strut nut's and bolt's everything in the front end.
