Hi I'm Kevin when is noise there when turning left or when turning right ?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
When turning right only
Expert:  Kevin replied 6 days ago.

A noise when turning right would suggest left hand cv is at fault . The weight is transferred to the left when turning right causeing the noise

Far as I am aware the right side cv joint was making noises so I replaced it. It is still making noises when I turn right but not as bad as before
