Clicking when turning even after new CV axles?

Started to get the clicking while turning left on the 2000 Wj 4.7 and I figured its worn out cv axle joints. It was coming from the front driver side. I changed the wheel bearing hub, upper and lower ball joints and the cv axle shaft. When I turn left I'm still getting the sound!? What else could this be?

Check the transfer case cable above the front drive shaft. It might not be up high enough. A wire tie will correct it. It only takes a minute to check. I couldn’t believe it solved my problem

Itís the CV joint on the front driveshaft, most likely rusted out under the boot. Take the driveshaft out and take it for a drive. See if it goes away.

I rebuilt mine using parts from

Ok Guys...I have the right answer to his issue.

Check the Intermediate Steering Shaft located under hood to left of Battery...Have someone rotate the Steering Wheel back-n-forth while you look at the shaft and hear for any clicks n clunks.

So its only clicking as I'm turning left as the wheels are rolling does that make a difference? I would think the steering shaft would make clicking noises if Im rolling forward or not? What do you mean by transfer case cable? Is this cable going to a specific sensor or something? Was yours actually hanging down and resting on the front driveshaft? Thanks for the answers guys!

It's a little hard to tell if you did both sides of your frontend? If you didnt......Dont forget the axle shaft on the Right side.... It has to turn left as well....

The transfer case Shift cable runs parallel with, and above the front drive shaft (From the shifter to the transfer case)There is a ten cent clip that holds the cable closer to the floor and higher up above the front drive shaft. If the clip breaks the cable drops some. Maybe only 3” above the drive shaft. While turning, braking, or the suspension flexes the cable contacts the drive shaft and makes a hell of a racket. It left mark on my drive shaft..

It may not be you’re problem , but it only takes a minute to check. Wire tie it higher up on your tranny and take it for a ride.

I figured eliminate this before dumping money into the other things

I snapped a few pictures just now. They are not very good. At the bottom of the one picture you can see the drive shaft. Above it you can see the wire tie I fastened the shift cable to the transmission cable bracket.
