Default Ticking Noise While Driving

For the last month or so i've began noticing a ticking noise coming from the front of the car while driving, It's mostly noticeable around 40-70 mph, it almost sounds like something from the wheel well is bouncing off the tire but i didn't really see anything of the sort. I think i've isolated the sound to the front left and i'm starting to get worried it's something mechanical, any ideas? Thanks

This is going to sound dumb, but check your cotter pin. When I first started driving the Max I noticed that ticking and started getting worried. I would hear it more clearly when driving on the side of a wall. I took the tire off and checked the suspension, and when I was putting the tire back on I noticed the cotter pin that holds the axle was loose enough to make the ticking, Just a thought. Always start with the minor things first.
