Question about 1996 Geo Metro
My car is making a clunking noise underneath. when i turn & put on the gas is when i really notice it. it also seems like it comes from the the front of the car like underneath the drivers side and passenger side. i can only describe it as a clunking noise. help me please.
X10 , lug bolts,
or even cracked rims
or even bad wheel bearings
or even brake rotor bad. warped.
doing a hands on full inspection (man handling parts)
is the only way, guessing on the net is zero solution.
I can list maybe 25 ways to make noise. on car.
why do that.?

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?
on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

You didn't say if it was automatic or manual, but I think your problem is really your transmission. Put the wheels back on the ground, grab the shafts and try turning them. If they don't turn or move around excessively, you can safely eliminate the CV joints.

i use a 3 arm puller to force the shaft out of the hub spline (do not hammer on the cv shaft at all, you will destroy it), and either a pickle fork or a specialy designed ball joint puller to seperate the balljoint from the knuckle. if you dont have a special puller and need to save the balljoint. try using a 6 or 8 foot steel bar to pry down on the lower control arm while another person strikes the knuckle at the balljoint location. note pin retainer type balljoints have a small slot which can be spread open alittle with a cold cut chisel or larg screw driver once the cv shaft is out of the way
