^ yeah, Greg. It's an unmistakable sound. By the time you hear it, the joint is rooted. Generally easiest to hear doing full lock circles at low speed in each direction.

Next check point is to examine all the boots for damage and/or grease leaks.

Well replaced noise is less but not gone. Glade I done it as there was a fair bit of play top strut mount and rubber had seen better days. Next I will try steering end and sway bar ends and rubbers

The xv has developed a ticking/squelching noise in the front left. Cannot isolate at all. No idew what it is but there straight or turning and disappears as you go faster. Wheel turning frequency. Took all the stones out of the tread . rolled it back and forward with the wheel in the air. Can't find it. Soon as I go slow back again.????????

Did you check the entire tyre width for nails?

Also check that you haven't got a small branch/wire/whatever touching the driveshaft etc anywhere?

These things can sometimes be damnably hard to find, and once found often as obvious as anything.

Found mine. I had my new wheels epoxy coated and the back faces and the nut tapers had been painted. The paint had crumbled and loosened the wheels. Had to tighten them all again. All were loose especially the fronts.
Word of advice, If you get you wheels painted remove the paint from the nut tapers and the rear wheel mating face or make sure they don't get painted.

Loose wheel nuts are more common than you think.
