Its clicking driving straight and turning with the rotation of the wheel.

Before you start swapping out too many things, I'd take a look at the wheel bearing. Not necessarily related but on an 05 Tahoe I have, they went out around 40K miles ... and I had bought it new. Has 267K on it now and haven't a problem since. Just a bad bearing then for me, even though it was "new"

Oh that’s a wheel bearing. Mine did the same thing. And then kinda started squeaking.

Got home and decided to risk it by driving the half mile to the mechanic vs waiting on a tow. About 500 ft from the shop I heard a pop like something fell off, but was happy when my wheel was still on and the clicking went away. Turns out some how my center cap got loose and was making the noise, didnt even think to check that.

glad to hear it was something simple - even if it turned out to be a bit of a facepalm moment :)
