Default weird sound when make left turn ( 95 camry)

my camry makes "Ta Ta Ta .." sound when I made left turn and press gas
pedal to accelerate . (No prlblem with driving forwards in either local
or highway)

It comes from the front, seems like either some belt is loose or some
suspension is bad


I just changed the 2 front struts that are really weak, and the
mechanic had a brief inspection at the suspension around and found
nothing else wrong, but the problem still exist

anyone can tell me what is wrong? is it belt problem or engine problem?
Thanks a lot

Sounds like perhaps a CV joint (Axle half shaft).
If he didn't find a problem with the ball joints, this would most likely
be it. Most of them make a kind of clicking sound. You can raise the front
of the car and grab the wheel and rock it back and forth and see if the
sound comes back.

it sounds like a cv joint is bad. If the boot is split open replace the
boot with fresh grease and itll be ok.

You need to get them very early to get away with just replacing the boot. If
it is at the stage where it is noisy I don't like your chances.
