Question about Volkswagen Golf
my only sugggestion is try focusing on the left front side of the vehicle instead of looking in the bushes.
now that joke session is over i would raise the car and place it securely on jackstands so both front wheels are off the ground and then put the car in gear.
go to the front and watch the wheels going around look for anything out of kilter.
if it is clicking sound and normally heard in turns then it is likely a bad cv joint.
if it is not i would pay particular attention to the tires looking for a bump on the treadwall of the tire or plys separating metal wires sticking out or a large screw head sticking out/embedded in the treadwall. also check that the sway bar is attached and that the pins where it attaches to the control arm are in good condition.
then check your tie rod ends for play or looseness

Any bushing that is worn out could be a possibility. The other thing you have to check if the bushing moved so it's not centered anymore. I always making sure all nuts and bolts are tight. Also look for rusty areas when metal to metal rubs it take paint and or undercoating off then rust. Sometimes you can find problems with car is at normal riding height so try car ramps. Don't leave exhaust out, shake it bang on it with hand or rubber mallet. I have run into lugnuts bottoming out before they tighten wheel. I hope I given you any ideas.
