With that wheel jacked off the ground. Worn ball joint and/or the lower arm bushings which the ball joint is on, (jack the wheel and grap at 12 & 6 oclock and rock is there play at the ball joint going in and out. You likely need and observer but if really bad you won't)
faulty front strut on that side (for that 1st check for fluid leak at the top of the strut, slide the black boot up and look/feel for oil at the piston shaft top end)
Otherwise strut assemble issue with wheel on the ground try and rock that corner up and down. It does take effort and see if that action causes the noise. If it does the strut if faulty or if they're a leak from it.
