if it only does this during turning could be a few things, possible control are bushings, tie rod/rod ends, ball joints, or axle granted the axel usually is a clicking sound not popping but has been known to pop also if its ball joints or tie rods/rod ends it take a long time and really bad wear to come apart but generally doesn't happen very often so don't worry about anything falling off just check those things listed and replace what it is soon and you will be fine
ok, Tie rods don't have boots. The only thing up front with a boot is the CV joint. You have to use a cutter to remove the bands from a CV joint however, unless your trying to repair the joint you don't want to do that. There is no lubrication point inside the boot you need to reach. If for some reason you need to remove that boot you need to get a CV joint Boot Repair kit to do this as it will have replacement bands to use in the repair. Because of the nature of a CV joint and it's importance to operating correctly I don't recommend trying to do a Joint repair on your own. On the Tie Rod typically you will replace the out end. You need to have a tie Rod puller to remove the tie rod end off the "A" frame after you have released the lock nut in the center then simply unscrew the tie rod end. You'll want to make sure you mark the old tie rod somehow so you can put beside the new part and mark it so you know how far to screw that in so the Alignment matches, as close as possible. The tie rod puller is a special tool you can get from Auto Zone to remove the Tie rod end from the "A" frame.
Buy or borrow a tie rod end separator (like a smaller version of a ball-buster), loosen the nut, and drive the separator in to pry the shaft out. After you get the tie rod separated, you will have to loosen the retaining bolt on the end of the CV joint. Considering the age of the vehicle, you may want to just replace the tie rod ends. The job is a royal pain in the arse, and I am taking my PT Cruiser into the transmission shop tomorrow to let them do it. They quoted me 2 hours of labor for $150, although a lot of shops charge more than $75 an hour.
is it a nosie your talking about ? if so check the sway bar links make sure they are tight and not cracked or worn in anyway, then check upper control arms as well as tie rod ends. I have seen so many people try to replace everything for a noise and it was the tie rod end! they are very sneaky and can sound like a control arm. same with the sway bar links.you can take a jack put it under the control arm jack it up to where the tire is barely off the ground take a pry bar or strong long bar put under the tire and lift up & down while someone looks under at suspension parts you can also buy a automotive stethoscope for like 10$ to listen to each as you do that. most part stores sell them.
