    I used to get aloud knock when I would reverse and turn the wheel to the right, sometimes it was loud sometimes it was faint, but it rarely does it anymore. I have noticed, when I turn my wheel to the left and I'm moving forward, there is a clicking or ticking noise.... Drives me nuts because it's been going on since I've had it and I can't seem to pin the problem... Wish I had camera mounted on the bottom of the vehicle while in motion so I can figure it out.

    I would first suggest looking at the front driveshaft like is it hitting any thing, this should be evident by shiny spots near and above the u-joint. also check for any slop in the front u-joints. The front drive shaft could have hit something also so look for any damage from that.

    Just to throw something out there...check the ball joints for knocks/crackles and wheel bearings for clicks/ticks

    How about this ? Is this an engine mount ? Should it have a bushing ?PHOTO_20190814_064222.jpg

    I'm with @aggrex . Check ball joints, bearings, and u-joints. A clicking noise is a common issue with all. And there are several ways of checking each.
