Question: funny noise when I turn to the right

The brake pad has a metal warning finger on the pad to alert you the brake pad is worn. If it is a clicking sound that increases with intensity with tightness and speed of a turn it could be a worn axle CV joint. Other possibility is a worn wheel bearing.

Thanks for responding. Could it also be a bad CV axle? Do I have to replace CV joint if I replace the axel. What do you think it would cost to fix? Are you local? I live in Loveland ,CO.

If the noise is present when turning the steering wheel and the vehicle is NOT moving, you may have power steering system noise or maybe even a strut bearing plate. Make sure you have adequate power steering fluid in the resevoir.
