If it is a clicking sound when you turn the wheel either direction the
cv joints may be ruined. Check the cv boots for damage. the clicking
sound is the main indicator. not too expensive to replace if you look
for the right shop. You WILL get a large range in prices and some
people trying to scare you. I have done it myself. Not technical
work, just hard work.

Thank you guys so much, you were right on, it was a snapped cv and i didn't
have to go to the mechanic without a clue about the situation. It cost $355
with towing (the guy recommended to replace the full axle)
