Front end noise

Hi all hoping someone can help. Everytime I lift off the throttle and coast I get a clicking sound from the front drivers side. Its not there when I turn only in a straight line. I suspect driveshaft/cv etc but I am looking for any further ideas. Also get a creaking sound as I pull up!! Any ideas

Brakes ???? Get the wheel off and get the pads out. It may be the wear indicators on the pads.....

The only time (other than brakes) that I have heard a similar sound is when a friend of mines Classic had a suspected foobarred driveshaft. It made a clicking sound when accelerating or driving around a left bend.

Thanks guys for your advice.....turns out the wheel was slightly loose on hub...retightened/torqued and the sound went away. How dull do I feel. Think the disc was being allowed to move slightly within the caliper causing the sound. Once the wheel and therefore the disc were tight no problem. Thanks again and I'll learn to be brighter!!!!
