Clicking noise while braking low speeds, especially while turning

I started having this problem several months ago. I had my rack end pinion replaced already , which costs an arm here in my country (Philippines) ouch.

Here is what is happening. I hear a streak of clicking sound when braking at low speed to stop, especially while turning. I can hear it coming from driver side front wheel part. I remember before this started happening, I was on my way down a flyover , then there was a pothole and I braked hard, the brake pedal had a rough feeling suddenly and I felt like as if the pedal pushed my foot back up. After that, I started getting those annoying clicking noise when braking while turning, or even when braking only.

My brake pedal started to have a different feel to it. It's normal when braking at higher speeds or even at low speeds, but when it's about to put the car to a full stop, the brake pedal goes like an inch or 2 deeper with lower pressure feel.

It's weird though, that when I am backing up, even if I am slowly backing up or a bit fast , and even if I am turning while backing up, there is no clicking noise and brake feel is normal and no weird feeling to get the car to a full stop, no brake pedal pressure difference just the good old days when the car had no problem, it's like that.

The clicking noise happens only when moving forward. I am getting crazy over this matter that is why I rarely drive the car now. I am pissed off because the dealership could not do anything about it. All they did was suggest we replace lots of suspension parts which will cost me a lot , believe me, A LOT! Think $4,000. The Rack End Pinion cost me $1,000+ without labor.

The dealership here was not able to fix the noise problem. I didn't complain about the rack end pinion replacement because I actually needed it replaced anyway. I am not happy with the dealership work now because they were not able to pinpoint what the problem is. I had to bring 2 cars just to leave the car there, because its like 100kms away.

HELP PLEASE! By the way. It's a 2005 300c hemi.
