    iam having a toktoktok sound coming from my front end right side especially when passing unpaved roads, i am wondering what it is?

    does it come with evry revolution of the wheels or as you hit a bump...if it's from bumps it's most likely a lower ball joint..if it's as the wheel turns it's a cv joint

    while standing sill move the steering gently left and right...if you hear any clunks or feel looseness it may be the tie rod ends,if not it is likely the lower ball joints...it is also possible a strut mount is loose or any other component in the front end...jack up the front end and grab a wheel hands at 3 and 9 o'clock and push/pull the wheel back and forth ..if you feel the looseness its tie rods...do the same with a hand at the top (12 o'clock) and bottom (6 o'clock) if you feel the looseness it's the ball joint
