clicking noise while turning hard left and accelerating (or not)

'91 M5, Dinan suspension, under 110k miles.

few years ago, would only happen when I have a full tank and only when I turn hard and accelerate at the same time. This summer, I noticed the clicking noise is louder and easier to make it happen, and dont even have to be in gear if I just coast, and make a hard left turn.

Interestingly, right turn doesn't do it. I'm pretty sure it's coming from the back.

It sounded like a bad CV joint, but the boots are fine, no tears, and m '94 525 with more than double the mile doesn't have this issue, so I kinda am thinking it's not the CV joint - maybe wheel bearing?

Any experience or diagnosis for this?
