Does sound like your CV joint. When you turn and you hear clicking noises coming from the front end your CV joint will need replacing.

1996 nissan pathfinder rumbling 'rotational' noise from front

put the front up on jack stands and start inspecting push, pull, tug, ****, kick whatever you have to do to find out if anything is loose under the front end if you can't find anything put the whole thing up on jack stands then with the help of a trusted budy have him/her start and put the vehical in gear let idle see if you can hear the rumlbing. then very carfully slide under the vehical and listen. use a vaccum hose as a mechanics stethoscope, or use a long handle screwdriver or prybar to put on suspect bearing housing and listen for the grinding noises.

1999 Nissan Quest while turning left it makes a clicking sound. What could be wrong.

it sound to me like you have a cv joint worn out. these are located on either end of your driveshafts and dependant on where and what side the noise is will indicate which 1 needs replacing. usaually caused by a split cv gaitor leading to an ingress of dirt and water.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in

Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

your cv joint is bad. Instead of fixing the cv joint it is actually easier and cheaper to have or replace the entire axle your self. Because it comes with a cv joint and you get a new axle also.

Clicking noise in the front end when making turns
