My steering wheel is hsaking and vibrating really


You need to jack up the car and check that wheel right away. You may have a bad bearing and/or spindle. A front end problem like this is very dangerous so please check or have checked asap. The car should not be driven till this problem is repaired. The axle joint may be causing the clicking or the bearing. But if it looks as if the wheel could fall off don't drive it to a repair shop if you are not repairing have it towed.

Noise from front end more so when you are turning


You also could have received a bad axle. Sometimes the rebuilds don't hold good tolerance and can make the same noise you are trying to get rid of. Is it full-time 4wd? Maybe the driveshaft ujoint also.
