Clicking at Passenger Tire

Ok it started yesterday, and I figured it was an engine mount based on the noise and the application the noise is being produced, having a buddy listen today I found I was wrong. When I put the car in first gear and start to go the tire clicks, twice, then doesnt do it until I pretty much go in reverse, or sit at a light for a while. He heard the noise and figured it is behind the rotor but is not sure what. Now to narrow it down the clicking only happens when the car is fully down, does not make noise if the tires are off the ground. The clicking also sounds like the wheel of fortune click, if that helps lol.

I do have a way to check it and find out exactly what it is but it will be a while and I was wondering if anyone may know the actual answer or solution to this problem.

no, because it only clicks when I first move forward or first move backward, after I'm already moving the clicking does not come again until I fully stop, kinda hard, wait then go again. Thats kind of why I thought it was an engine mount.

how low are your RPMs when you stop - it should be 650 to 800 , how ever mine goes to 550 and when it happen the car start to make noise but its normla cuz of the low RPMs but to have 550 RPMs when stop is not normal. I dont know why my car goes to 550 when I stop.

My RPM's are at normal operation. The clicking noise only occurs when I start to go in first gear and reverse. It will only click twice going forward then never again until I go into reverse then it clicks once.

sounds like a cv joint problem to me guys. check the boot on the outer cv joint. if that's in tact, well it's sorta guess work unless you can get it to make the noise on a lift. you sorta need the suspension loaded to get it to do that. please, take this advice with a grain of salt. I could very well be wrong.
