See if higher octane would solve the problem. It could be a timing issue or just a dirty sensor. If you can have these checked then the better. Some shops would let you borrow their diagnostic tool to see if there are error codes saved in the computer.

Major clicking when car is in a turn especially on the right. Is this bearings or cv joint

Sounds like you have a bad CV joint. The rubber boots on these joints have a tendency to crack letting the grease out and corrosive material in. It's time to replace the joint.

Rattle in low gears when clutch is let out...

Subaru's are notorious for having exhaust rattles from the heat shields on the catalytic converter.

Does the noise go away or lessen when the engine gets hot? I know it seems unrelated, but on my 2002 Impreza it made a lower groan sound at first when ever I would shift gears as the engine speed (RPM) dropped. I put up with it for a year then finally I got a stainless steel hose clamp from the hardware store and put it around the heat shield.

Truly I should just get a new catalytic converter, they are around $200, but the hose clamp stopped the noise.

This might not have anything to do with it your noise. It is a cheap and easy fix though.

Good Luck

Sure sounds like a throw out bearing having too much room. Might need adjustment.

The CV joint can be the same, but not sure because you don't mention the year of the cars

Removal of drive shafts

Take a tyre lever a put in between the g/box and inner cv joint put slight pressure but be sure you are not catching the oil seel, Then give the Cv a slight knock away from the g/box. It has a cir clip inside that keeps it from moving out while driving.
