Clicking noise when I turn

Hi,
I keep hearing a clicking noise from my front wheels (or at least it sounds like its coming from the front of the car) whenever I turn (doesn't matter which direction).

Anybody run into this problem b4?

Buy a rebuilt axle, don't just replace the boots on your shot ones - they are already beyond rebooting.

The axle you can get for about $150 and its about an hour of work. Figure out which one it is (look for a torn boot on the axle or one that is leaking grease) and just replace that one. Also buy a seal for the transmission and replace that.

yes replace the entire axle if you replace one you should think of doing the other. every time i changed an axle on a car the other side went a short wile after.

If your are near NYC I can tell you where to get them for under $75 each rebuilt by the same shop that sells to the autoparts stores.

Actually I'm in MN, but maybe they can ship or will their weight not make it worth the trouble?

Is there a FAQ here that gives step by step on changing axles?

I tried searching under cv boots and didn't really find anything addressing my problem.

Thanx for all the input everyone!

I checked out "Axle Assemblies" at expressautoparts.com here

http://www.expressautoparts.com/Part...xle%20Assembly

Is this what I need? They are pretty cheap actually $62.99 per side.
