Clicking Noise from Steering

I have clacking noise coming from the front when driving on a rough road or bumps. It is like something is playing within the steering system & much closed to the steering column. I am feeling minor vibration in the steering wheel when the noise is there. Also the steering is a bit heavy. Changed the control arms & steering rack but still the noise is there. Any thoughts or experiences ?????

clacking noise coming from the front when driving on a rough road or bumps = sway bar links faulty!!!

minor vibration accentuated in turns = wheel bearings

** dunno if you are allowed to drink in your corner of the globe but salaa'm

Can you post a picture showing the location of sway bar joints & the wheel bearings?

Drinking gives people bad breath, and no one enjoys a hangover. Alcohol puts your health at risk. Drinking can also increase your chance of: saying or doing something you'll regret later ..
