sounds like its coming from the front right wheel. I installed Rodney dickman dual steering dampers. wasn't able to drive it to test it out because it was raining. I took the car out today to fill it up with gas for the winter. drove fine, felt goo with the dual dampers on but noticed a clicking noise when I was stopped and turned the wheel to the right going to park it??? what would it be???

So you are running 2 steering stabilizers? With the added dampers, did you flip one the shocks the other way for tension in both directions?... just curious..... I run the Fox dual tension steering stabilizer on my jEEP and love it.. especially running the bigger tires


-------

Going back to the sound...I would say this mod above wouldnt make the clicking.. Wheel bearings click as do cv axles...?..

OH wait!!... are the travel lengths in the shocks correct... maybe one is compressed too much when turning the steering wheel or vice versa.. over extending

Both dampers are new and the same and they are reversed.

Did you change anything else? Wasn't a Fiero but I changed stabilizer links on a vehicle once and the wheel weight that was on the inside bead clicked it sometimes on a turn.

Had the wheel weight thing happen to me once in a Fiero. Don't remember what wheels I had on it so the offset might have been to close. But a wheel weight on the inside of one of the wheels was hitting something when I turned while driving. That might be your problem. Worth checking.

Maybe the wheel weight hitting the brake line?..

Is this clicking when in a "roll".. for instance, wheel bearing.. as you turn the wheel.. or when you turn the wheel at a stand still?

Well . . . guess that eliminates wheel weights being the problem. Could be the steering rack causing it.

Have someone turn the wheel while you get up front and listen/watch. See if this issue is also present when the front end is jacked up.
