2002 Subaru Impreza 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles
I have what can best be described as a clicking noise during right hand turns. The noise happens at varying speeds but never over 20mph. The passenger front CV axle was orginally replaced when I was at a local Subaru dealership and told them about the noise to which they said it was the CV axle, I had a local Goodyear store perform the service, the noise went away for a while, I suspected this new axle may be the problem and brought it back to the same store, they took a look said the axle was fine and they weren't able to reproduce the noise. In disbelief I brought it to another Goodyear store by my work, they too werent able to reproduce the noise and said everything looked ok.
I can produce the noise just from backing out of a parking space, I cannot believe that they weren't able to reproduce it. Regardless, could this possibly be something related to a steering component, or maybe a U-Joint? There is no difference in ride quality, all the tires have the same tread depths and are regularly rotated, the steering does not feel rough or feel like it is binding as if the differential was low on fluid or having problems. What could it be or what else should I be looking at?
have the same problem?
