Default Clicking Noise From Axle?

Im not too worried about it because when I bought it a year ago my maxima did it and I've never had car troubles but I just want to know what the hell it is lol

Whenever I drive slow (between idle and 25ish) I hear a clicking noise and the clicking speed is determined by how fast I'm going so I assume it's with my axle.
Does anyone else's do this? I think it's around my front left tire

It's been doing it for the entire year I've had it but it's never gave me a problem except in parking lots where it bugs the hell out of me lol

It sounds like when the wheel turns a complete rotation it makes the sound

Does it get worse or better when you turn all the way right or left?

If your driving at the speed you describe but then shift into neutral, is the clicking still present?

CV boot seems logical to me too, get under there and inspect those boots, take pics if you spot any problems. It may not be bothersome, but it's definitely something that shouldn't be there.

I echo the CV Boot diagnosis. This happened to me a few years ago and that was the culprit. And oddly enough, it's started up again on me in the last week so I will have to deal with it again shortly.

Just replace your whole axle and call it a day. Buy the part from RockAuto.com and take it to your local mechanic. Labor should be around $50 or so to install.

Turning my wheels to the right an left doesn't change the clicking and it only happens when the cars moving....I can definitely tell it clicks when the wheel makes a full rotation and what would the cv boot look like?

I found and fixed the problem

It was the pin behind the rims that was loose so I tightened it and have had no problems!

You made out good, I was installing Eibachs a couple weeks ago and my right axle fell out. Mine was worn really bad. Ive always had problems from my passenger side, but Good Job
