95 z28 clicking when turning (Video link)

95 z28 clicking when turning at slow speeds (pulling into driveway/parking spot etc.) any idea what this could be? Kind of hard to capture the sound on video so turn the volume up. Sound is at about 4 seconds in. Any input is appreciated!

Sidewyz28,

Is the sound the same when turning left or right? My first thought would be to check the torque on all lugnuts. Beyond that, if there are any hubcaps/center-caps on the wheels, remove them. If you still hear that clicking sound, replace one wheel at a time with the spare, and try again - you may have a crack in one rim. A cracked rim can fail all at once, so it can be very dangerous. If you have stock wheels, a good junkyard rim can be a cheap fix, there.

Drive with the windows open for a short while. If you hear the sound when "weaving" slightly at road speeds, and the sound is not the same, left and right, you may have a bad front wheel bearing. You might also "feel" the sound in the steering wheel, then.

There may be some problem with the rear differential, but I'd expect a much louder sound (and maybe a vibration) if so. A good mechanic may be able to nail the problem for you, just by circling on the lot. Listen to the differential, running the engine in gear on a frame lift. A check for metal chips in the differential fluid may tell you something, as a last resort.
