Clicking noise while turning??

So I've had this problem since I received the car. There seems to be a loud clicking noise when making a turn. I believe it only makes the noise when turning turning left or right (I believe the left) and I have yet to figure out what it is. Anyone have an idea what it could be? I've been doing a lot of reading and it seems like this is a common problem. I just want to figure it out because I'm ordering a bunch of parts in a couple weeks so I can just fix it all at once.

Grease your ball joints, tie rods and check sway bar bushing and report back.

This was exact problem with mine; you have to replace the metal rods that attach the power steering to the axel. They are $20ish from ford.

I'll look into doing that this week or next week then. Does it matter what kind of grease I use?

Wheel bearing and chassis grease.

I'm having the same problem. After having someone turn the steering back and forth repeatedly while I was under the car, it seems like mine is the inner tie rod.
