Default Clicking noise while turning

As the title says, I have recently noticed when I make sharp left or right turns I get a clicking noise from the passenger front wheel, it's not a wheel bearing I checked by moving the wheel for play, I'm suspecting a ball joint or u joint. Has anybody had these issues before? Thanks!

Could also be ball joints. Mine clicks and pops when I turn.

Turn the wheel all the way to one side so you can get good access to one of the axle shafts and grab and try to move it for play if there is any it's the u joint
