    i got so many noises comeing from my x its not funny. i know one of then is the slip yolk. the others all originate from the front wheels durning turns, when i back into a packing space i get a click click click click. or when i turn and brace at the same time and come to a stop i got a snap snap snap snap snap snap.

    For th wheel sound, if its a weird clunking sort of when turing or going over bumps, check you bushings (probably the radius arm bushings need to be replaced) Thats what my 94' did when I turned or hit a bumb, made it sound/feel like the whole suspension was lose.
    As for the "click click click click, snap snap snap snap " sound I have no friggen idea what that is, but it sounds like it would annoy the hell out of me;)

    97's don't have radius arm bushings. Check the shock bushings, and the sway bar bushings first.

    I would also check your front cv joints and boots. If the boots are cracked or torn, the joints are probably bad.
