Default Ratcheting Noise Coming From Right REAR!

Today I noticed a ratcheting sound coming from the right rear of our 2001 PT. It appeared when I was making a hard right turn, and then on right turns afterward. I didn't hear it on left turns. I tried the hard turn and acceleration tests to determine if maybe it was a front CV joint resonating through to the rear, but there wasn't any indication of that.

This car is a Limited with Rear Disc Brakes. It has 82,000 miles on it. We bought it at 79,000 two years ago and I doubt that the rear brakes were ever off the car.

We live in the central Arizona Furnace Zone. When parked, the right rear wheel gets the worst of the afternoon sun.

Thoughts? Sticky caliper? Sticky parking brake inside the hat?

Possibly wheel bearing.

Is there a reasonably simple way to test without tearing out the hub? Not that it looks terribly difficult, though. Spin the wheel, etc.
