Cruching clicking sounds Front wheels!

Hi
Been hearing loud cruching and clicking noises from my front wheels once per revolution when I turn, worse the more I stear but not as bad when I free wheel and turn with out using the accelerator. Trying to place it but have a strong feeling it may be my CV joints or wheel bearings
Still a rookie with my defender so help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Go buy some swivel grease STC3435, one for each side.
Remove the fill plug, at the top of the swivel (thats the shiny bit on the inside of the wheel hub).
Now remove the max level plug. Open one swivel grease sachet and empty it in until grease starts to come out the fill plug. When that happens, stop and put the both plugs back in.
Repeat for other side.
Now take a look at both sides. Is there evidence of leakage from the swivels? If yes, then its time to take it in and have the seal replaced.

he really needs to pull a hub off and inspect it. if there are broken bits from CV's, Axle spines or bearings, he's been lucky that none of them have caught up in turning gears, but he's at risk of having his steering jammed from a bit in the wrong place at an inconvenient time.

Bearing are easy to rule in or out by jacking the wheel up and checking hub for play.

Check to make sure that you have grease or oil in the hub first... Then jack the truck up and slowly spin the wheel while listening to and feeling for problems. If you find a problem, take the wheel off and start to disassemble the hub. You will need the hub tool and and possibly a new/used CV.

BTW, Molly grease is cheaper and basically the same thing... I have been using this for years.
