Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just check your car does not have differential locks, in theory they should not come on without being switched on but they can fail in the 'on' position. Lift both front wheels and see if the steering is stiff with the engine running, if it is then the 'locker' is not to blame. If it is now free then look at the locker and see if it has seized,

Well your Caster should be +2.0degrees to +4.0degrees Your Camber should be at .+2 degrees to +1.7 degrees but I would keep it around .+2 degrees for best tire wear.Your should be should be 1/16th to 1/8th inch toed in.

you were experiencing that because you have upgraded your tires. use factory tire size recommended. otherwise, u have to install additional sway bars to hold in place your tires to the steering wheel.
