Hello. Welcome to Just Answer . Please allow me to assist you. A clicking noise, heard only on turns, is usually the outer joint on the front axle. If your front axle configuration utilizes constant Velocity joints, look for a torn rubber boot at the wheel side of the axle shaft. If you have U-Joints, moving the axle back and forth with the tire stationary would reveal the problem. More often than not, a torn CV joint boot will allow all of the lubrication to leak out. This wears out the CV joint. If the boot is torn, and it is clicking, you need a new CV joint.
