Clacking from the fight front when cornering under acceleration. Seems the Axles are at an extreme angle on the Impreza. I have to do some more "parking lot circles: to diagnose further. I've also heard of center support bearings/rubber damper going on the center drive shaft, rearward. Never had issue like this on a Subaru over Decades. Accordion boots are fine. I might get a new boot clamp and pull the boot back and see if there are metal bits - and move the grease around. Doesnt seem any worse than any NEW 4WD truck I've owned, Also I might make sure the axle is in all the way at the differential side. This model year the halfshaft splines just pop in, no circlips or roll pins.

I'm curious to hear what people report, since my extended warranty is up and I occasionally hear a clicking from the front right while making tight right turns and accelerating.
