Default Clicking noise...sometimes...front right side

So i was driving the wifey to work yesterday when i noticed a pretty loud clicking type noise coming from the front right wheel? I pulled over had a look, could not see anything wrong...reversed for about 20 feet than foward again. It went away. Did the same thing when i picked her up. drove, started clicking than i reversed than no more noise. Im guessing a wheel bearing? I just had my front cv axles replaced about 1500 miles ago so they should be good. noise fades when car slows down. It sounds like a bad bearing...any ideas?
thanks

In my experience with bad wheel bearings, you should get a growl or hum while driving down the road. By turning the wheel, like a lane change, it should decrease or increase the noise. Helping you point out what side has failed. Double check the axle boots are not torn. You may pull the wheel also and assure the axle nut is tight.

If for example its a clicking noise while going around a turn then for sure a torn cv boot. If anything jack the car up and see if there is any play if you try to physically move the wheel. If there is no play then you need to check the cv boot.

I do not know if they where remans or not. Hopefully not. I will have time tomorrow to put it on the lift and see whats going on. It's not a hummm for sure, but a loud clicking, similar to the clicking when a bad CV when you turn the wheel, but when it make the noise when driving straight and does not get louder when you turn the wheel. I just had CV's put in 2 months ago.

OKay, I took the wheel off for some inspection to see what the hell was going on. I looked at my cv's. Where the cv bolts to the tranny, there was 1 bolt missing and the collar that balances the "spin" still hadone bolt in it and the colooar was bent to **** was causing the noise. Brought it back the jackasses who put them in and said that they should never come out. I said bullshit, three of the bolts where loose and 1 missing. He said they used locktight.
