If you are hearing a clanking sound when driving you probably need to replace your CV joint.  One thing that you can look at is the CV boot.  If you are hearing noises coming from the CV joint, your boot is more than likely cracked or ripped completely.  The boot is directly behind the wheel and is easy to see if you turn the wheel all the way to the right or left.  Sounds like you need new CV joints though.

What could be the problem?


If it's the front end that is shaking, check the ball joints, motor mounts and idler arm. Lift the front end of the van until tires are off the ground. Wiggle the front tires side to side checking for slack, use a pry bar or 2x4 to lift the wheels to check for slack. Everything should be tight. Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while the van is on the ground and look for loose connections in the front end. If any loose connections are found replace them. A mechanic can do a front end inspection for you for little cost if any at all. CV Joints generally do not cause any vibration when they are worn out; however, they will cause a lot of clicking noise when you turn corners once they have worn out.

How to replace a cv joint


I can tell you how to replace the CV joint but it is by far better to just buy a re-manufactured axle. The price of the CV joint itself then the labor to remove the axle, change the joint and install it is a big pain. Changing just the CV joint is labor intensive and you could run in to problems. Don't risk it, but a rebuilt.

Drive shaft noise


Usually inner CV joints will create a shake/vibration under load.If you can change the vibration at the same speed with load it may need inner CV joints.Grab them and check for side play/looseness in the each shaft to check.

When turning corners while driving my 91' honda accord lx, it started making a loud clicking noise, what could cause this?


Your outer CV joint is blown. You need to replace this soon - if the joint fails, the car will not move.

There is a clunking noise in the right front tire when i turn right what could that be?


Most likely will be the CV joint needs to be replaced. CV's are around $60 each and I recommend do both at once and just get it over with. Takes a couple hours.

Sway bar could be the issue but not likely unless it's broken at the end link.

If its the bearings - you should feel a wobble in the steering wheel or if you put the car on a lift and try to wiggle the tire/wheel and it does have play in it - likely to be the bearings and you would hear a constant noise from that tire and the clunking would be more constant.

2003 mercury sable. rattle noise on rough road. Sounds like front wheel loose.Jacked up can shake left wheel looks like loose at cv joint. Is this needing replaced? Can I do it ?


loose wheel not caused by cv joints. More likely ball joint or tie rod end. Usually need a lift to do this kind of work. If cv boot is torn open, replace axle as well. If you haven't done this kind of work before, recommend you get some help from someone that has done it.

Driveshaft is making noises


i presume that is a front wheel drive vehicle. you likely have a cv joint that is failing (constant velocitiy joint is the full name). if you raise the vehicle and turn the tire back and forth you should be able to tell which one is failing. rear wheel drives would likely need a universal joint replaced. replace both at the same time tho.
