didnt quite know where to put this, so im still kinda a newb so here goes...
so i have this weird speed sensitive clicking noise coming from the drivers side front ummm, region. the sharper i turn the louder it clicks. also it really only happens at low speed and when im turning left(though i have started to hear it more faintly when makin right turns recently) and gets quicker, and usually louder, the faster i go. im thinkin maybe cv joint, both axles were replaced b4 i bought the car, so thats out of the question. any input will be greatly apreciated. TIA. man, kinda started ramblin'. thanx y'all.

It is likely the CV joint is shot. The boots may have been changed last time instead of the axles. Check that the fender liner is not rubbing on the tires (just in case).

A new axle is about $100 at the local parts places and about $170 thru www.raxles.com Change the worst one now. You may have a few months until the other gets bad.
