is it more like a clicking sound? if so this could mean that the CV joint is shot. get under the car and look all the way around the cv boot, see if there are and holes/cuts in the boot. if you see any, it's a good sign that the joint was exposed and got some dirt or rocks in it. if that's the case you'll need to replace it.

check to see if your lug nuts are on tight. One time I changed my suspension and clicking was due to my lug nuts not being on tight. Don't ever rely on the impact-gun for putting on lug nuts, just taking them off. :p

yeah i rotated my tires and the problem is gone. i think it was a lug nut that was cross threaded.
