When i turn left or right sharp theirs a click sound someone told me to get tie racks audi 2002 a4

Is it just one or two pops? If so it's a ball joint. If it's a fast repetitive clicking, your CV joints are failing. Get them fixed ASAP. If one breaks (which will happen soon) your car will coast to a stop and not move again until the repair is done.

Clonking noise when turning the steering wheel back & fro or left to right

You have a bad cv joint. It could be either the left one, or the right one, the only way to know for sure is to look for a busted boot on the cv axle. The affected axle will need to be replaced.

2001 ford focus is making noise on right side axle?

You need to jack your car up and take a look at that side of your car. Inspect the axle, looking closely at the rubber boots on the axle (these are your CV joints) make sure they're not torn if they are then you'll need to replace the axle most likely because these boots hold grease which in turn keep the CV joints lubricated, once torn the grease escapes and the joint dries out. Also remove your tire and inspect your brakes, rotors, dust shields. look for anything that might be rubbing. Another possibilty is you could have a bad hub bearing on that wheel. This is a little more difficult to diagnose unless it's severly worn. If everything else checks good on that side. Driveyour car, preferably in a large open area like a parking lot in a straight line until you hear the noise then turn left and right, not sharply but just enough to shift te weight of the car, if the sound of the noise changes it's a good possibilty you have a worn hub bearing. Hope that helps, gl.

Cv joint question

Stationary lock to lock turning, will not damage the CV joints, they are designed to turn in this manner, to test a CV joint to see if it has damage, go to an empty parking lot, stop the car, turn the steering wheel full left, accelerate kinda hard, do you hear a clicking or clunking noise? repeat in reverse and on the right hand side. Any noises and your CV joints may be worn, also inspect the CV boots for tears and leakage by turning full left and looking at the boot, then full right. Hope this helps, let me know

SINCE 50,000k's I have experienced what feels like a slack cv-joint (vw aust showed little interest in solving the issue) - now at 160,000k's it's really uncomfortable on and off the throttle in traffic....

Usually when the CV axles start going out they will make a clicking noise when turning sharply in one direction or another. If you hear the noise while turning left, most likely the left axle, same for the reverse. Sorry, I don't know how many that particular vehicle has.

When turning sharply at low speed I hear a loud thump. 97 Lesabre

You may find it's either a worn CV joint or it may just need greasing up.
Check the bellows for splits, and if OK you can cut the large band that holds it in place, pull it back and check for grease, fill with grease and reattatch using a tie-strap.

After our suburu outback warms-up, there is a thumping noise from the front axles when I turn to the right or left. Our mechanic wants to change the transmission, but I am not sure that is the problem. He...

if its all wheel drive, you will have CV joints in the front. if the boots on the cv joints are damaged, torn ripped etc, then dust and debris will have entered into the cv joint and wreak all types of havoc on the bearing. To test, go into a parking lot and at slow speed....20km, 10 mi/hr turn sharp to one direction and listen to see if the noise becomes apparent = will be grinding or clunking. this is the result of the bearing wearing a groove in the cv bearing housing and when you turn sharply, the bearings do in and out of this groove, causing you to here a clunking sound. also, it should do this wether it is hot or cold = not temperature dependant
