a tinney tap when i turn Rt or Lf 1500 chevy pick up

I've taken it to the shop or shops one said trans another said brakes or drive shaft universals, wondering if someone could clear this up for me.
When I'm turning to the right or left i hear a alight tapping or clicking, then when i straighten out the wheel it stops.
I've gotten such different opinions on what it could be or
not. The trans was what i was told first that's way i went out get another opinion.
Best,

4 or 2 wheel drive? Does the noise apper to be from the front or rear? Does lightly applying the brakes while turning stop the noise?

Best,
Sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. Jack it up and check the bearing.Hold wheel at top and bottom and try to move in and out. Any movement is too much. Take off wheel and hub cover and check. Check the inside one too. Grease if necessary if not bad.

Sounds Familiar

My dad has a 2003 Silverado 1500 and when ever I borrow it, I notice it does the same thing when making turns, seems like left is worse. He got a full brake job about 2 years ago and it did nothing for the situation. He doesn't use the truck too much (4000 miles/year) so he really hasn't addressed the issue.
