Suspension clicking- what to check?

Hoping someone here can help me figure out a clicking noise. I have the car on jacks and when I push/pull the front wheels I hear a clicking sound. The sound only occurs at the end of the travel for a right turn. It sounds like it is on the right side and closer to the steering column.

Any ideas on what to look for? I did the horizontal shake test for the tie rods but this test seemed fine.

Thanks

Your upper strut bearing may need to be cleaned/packed.
If dirt gets into the bearing which is not sealed it can cause the clicking you describe.
To get to the bearing you have to remove the strut.
Happy Boxstering

Thanks Pedro! I'll be replacing suspension with ROW M030 kit so I'll check it while in there.

Control arms

I just spent weeks on a similar issue. Replaced the control arms.

Good luck
