help! grinding noise when turning hard right.

Okay guys. I have an 07 fit. Lowered on buddy clubs all the way down. I know I have a blown sway bar end link but that's not the noise. When I turn hard right or just go over a bump with my right wheel, I here a metal on metal grinding noise coming from the right side if car. But not near wheel well. Almost like near where the axel meets tranny. Please help out with ideas of what it is. And on a side note when I start out in first gear turning left or right I get a clicking noise. Don't think its related cause this had been happening before the grinding

How many miles are on the car? Sounds like your CV joint (s) are going bad.

Could possibly be a wheel bearing problem, google it for more info

Which side end link is blown out of curiosity? The endlink could be causing enough movement in the sway to let it grind against something. Also, you may very well have already checked this but, make sure you are clipping your tire on the inner fender. Could be the backside of the tire too so look at the deep inner fender.

Other than those it does sound like a CV based on the clicking.

The clicking sounds like the CV joints. The metal on metal sound is likely an interference issue where two parts are rubbing. I'd crawl underneath and see if you see anything shiny from parts rubbing.

Passenger side endlink but I just put it back in spot and it still makes the noise. But that's what I though, maybe cause I'm so low that when the body rolls something rubs against the axel I'm guessing cause that's the only thing that's moving in the middle of the car. But Idk for sure

check your sway bar right under the axel i had that problem until i changed my endlinks the sway bar was rubbing on the axel, you can see a ring that goes around the axel just above the sway bar. i bent my old endlinks and had the same problem
