My wife's '87 GL Wagon, EA82, SPFI, AT.

We're hearing a loud clicking or clunking sound from front left when driving straight forward. Sound is not present during turns. Sound does not begin until 25-30 MPH.

I'm thinking CV joint and/or wheel bearings, but why only when straight? :banghead:

Anybody have any thoughts or ideas?

Grab ahold of the CV shaft and see if its got up and down play in it.. Also pull that tire off that side and inspect your brakes.. while you have the tire off you can check that bearing.. grab ahold of the axle stub and see if its got up and down play
