Dang truck!!!

Well my dang truck right at near the end of rifle season decided to have problem. Was out Saturday evening with my girlfriend running around and all was fine, then Sunday we went to church and afterwards was pulling out of my driveway to over her place and as I was backing out of my driveway heard a clicking noise when turning the wheels left. The truck is 2008 GMC Sierra with about 103,000 on it. Was gonna drive it down to my mechanic but after trying to figure out what was going on the clicking was now also happening going straight as well and figured it's not safe to drive at all so had it towed Sunday night to the garage, any clue as to what to expect what it might be?

Wheel bearing, I doubt if it needed to be towed.
The wheel won't fall off, it will just rub the brake pad and make noises.
I had to put 5 wheel bearings on my truck in 7000 miles when I bought a bad set of Winterforce tires last winter..

Don't sound like wheel bearing, when you turn it sharply it clicks like crazy,I'm thinking CV Joint might of given out or possibly maybe tie rod end or even a bad U bolt but hey I'm no mechanic so these are just guesses.

Loose lug nuts,bad cv joint on axle or a bad wheel bearing but wheel bearings make noise well before they start clicking.You should have heard a loud hum then grinding on turns before clicking if it is bearing.Let us know what is found.

Well it's fixed and everyone was correct, wheel bearing went bad. Gonna have to get other one replaced but my mechanic said it's still good to go for awhile yet, said usually when one goes won't be to long that the other will as well. Thanks again.
