Several shops have had the chance to solve this and none of them even found the problem, much less a solution. Someone has got to know what is going on here. The clicking noise only happens when making a right turn. My first guess was CV Joint but, I've been told by several people that is not it. One guess was something to do with the transmission. I don't think I trust any of these shops anymore.

98% sure you have an axle problem. Might be wheel bearings depending on the sound. Bad axles will make a loud clicking noise, (click click click in rapid succession, espically while turning or under accleration) while wheel bearings will make a growling sounds.
is it like a growling noise, or a metallic "metal on metal" noise, is it clicking? when do you hear it? Common for wheel bearings to go out on those in my experience. usually you can narrow it to a wheel bearing if when you sway the car, you hear a growling noise towards the heavy end of the car, meaning if you turn to the left, causing the car to naturally sway right, the right hand tire front or rear starts making noise, thats usually a wheel bearing. If its a clicking noise while cornering and especially when corning with acceleration, thats usually a CV axle. if its a metal on metal noise, that can be a brake pad worn to low, or even just a simple backing plate to the brake rotor touching and rubbing the rotor.
It would appear that your CV joints are worn out completely, and you are going to have to replace them, or the whole half-shaft. When you hear those funny noises, that is your car talking to you... the only way it can, and you have to fix those noises ASAP.
Good chance it's CV joint . You'll have to get it checked, or at least jack side your hearing it on, up remove wheel,(make sure you use safety stands & emergency brake) and push & pull on shaft right at or near boot & see if there is slop/play there. If yes, time for new. Is this a job your experienced enough to do yourself or will it be going to a shop?
sounds like your CV joints are worn out. If the clicking noise gets worse when turning then its a definite possibility. Also check the CV joint boots for splits as this can quickly wear them out. The dust mixes with the grease to form a grinding paste.
It may be a bad serpentine belt or pulley or may be a bad bearing on an alternator or water pump or even a power steering pump ortensioner. Here is my suggestion when this noise is hear with vehicle running pour/spary belts with water and see if this noise get louder or goes away. If it does either then the belt is worn and replacing it will solve this problem. If there is NO difference then you will have to disconnect the belt and check each pulley individually to see which one is make this noise, this can be done by turning the pulley by hand. when it found replace that pully/part will fix the problem. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
no clicking what so ever i asked a friend of mine who used to be a mechanic and he said that it could possibly be the dust sheild on the brake caliper rubbing, there is no clicking sound. It makes a sound like the rotor is bumping into something when you turn. if i turn only a little there is little or no noise and it gets worse/louder the more u turn in that direction.
