This does sound like a outer CV joint you need to get to the repair shop when it starts to click and do a test drive with the mechanic .find a good open free car park and do a tight full circle one way then the other way a bad CV joint will click on tight turns . If clicking is not noticed then check engine mounts ,and take good note of the rear mount this one can cause you problem like you are having .
