    Your car is front wheel drive if you hear a clicking sound on tight turns that increases with the speed you take the turn the noise could be a bad CV joint (bad axle). If the clunking occurs going over a bump it could be shock/suspension related, or sway bar end link related, if it is on turns something could be rubbing in any case it needs to be checked out.
