Clicking when cornering could also be a symptom of a CV joint on it's way out. If so I think it'd be coming from the outside (of the corner) front wheel.

Agreed, bearings squeak don't they?

Well mine are at the moment!

We had both CV joints go (rare) on a Cavalier, and they do, indeed knock and click when going round corners, only at a slowish speed though.

A good test is to go to a car park and turn the wheel full lock and drive forwards slowly.
Do it in both directions. As Bazza said, you will hear it from the outside wheel.

I reckon that the lower wishbone bearings are knackered (happens all the time on 145/146's )
You can check it by jacking oup the car and try to move the wheel holding the lower half of the wheel Horizontally if you have movement the rubber bushes are worn out.

keep us posted and good luck
