Question about Cars & Trucks
Jack up the side that had the CV changed just clear of the ground, try rotating it by hand with the wheel on to see if you can pinpoint the noise. My guess is something has been put back on wrongly or there is a spacer missing, or, its the wrong shaft. If that doesn't do it, take the wheel of and drive it on tickover to rotate that hub. Don't get underneath without jack stands. Don't drive it anywhere until its fixed.

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).

We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.

Sounds like bearings to me. Jack car up and check for play. may be hard to detect. May only be on one side. car is kind of new to have bearings going out. That it is quiet on turns is usually a dead giveaway, but usually only gets quiet when turning a certain direction and not the other.

Testimonial: "great job, ended up replacing both wheel bearings in the front, and that took care of problem. thank you..."
I would pull all the wheels and inspect the brakes. If the brakes are grinding it should be pretty easy to spot.
Typically C/V joints will start to click when the get really bad. Especially when talking tight turns at slower speeds and accelerating.
