    ok.. i had previously had a squealing (<-probably spelled wrong) noise coming from my brakes.. well.. i was listening carefully and it makes 2 or 3 clicks from the driver side when i first start moving.. is this a wheel bearing or something.. :shrug:

    If it's a wheel bearing then lift the car and let the wheel in question hang free. Attempt to pivot the wheel in and out from top to bottom and then side to side. (push and pull the wheel) If there is a little play then it's wheel bearings. Cost is $50+ each. I had 1/3" in movement on both my front wheels! before I realized it and replaced them.

    Axles will normally give off a popping/clunking sound while accelerating and/or decelerating in the middle of a hard turn.

    Sway bar bushings. I just replaced mine and my clicky sound went away!
