    As I was driving to work this morning out of no where, I noticed a loud noise coming from the driver front side. Would happen while going over bumps or coming to a stop. It is like a clicking noise. I have made an appt but it is 3 weeks out. Anyone know of what might be causing this.

    Is your car AWD? If so, half shaft would be a good guess.

    My half shafts were replaced last month and there was a ticking sound but I wouldn't characterize it as loud. I had to listen for it and it only occurred during moderate to hard acceleration, not during bumps or stops.
