Re: htsI have a 95 subaru impreza with a knocking sound...
See if higher octane would solve the problem. It could be a timing issue or just a dirty sensor. If you can have these checked then the better. Some shops would let you borrow their diagnostic tool to see if there are error codes saved in the computer.

cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis
you could damage the cv joints over time but you will damage the power sterring pump if you hold the steering in lock ,it but strain on the pump by back feeding the presser of the pump and forces the pump presser to build up and damage pump seals
Yes you can,I'm not sure if your refering to the whole axle or one cv joint on the axle.Replacing a cv joint is best left to a qualified mechanic,most cv joints require special tools and procedures to replace correctly.
Check the cv joints behind each front tire. See if they are torn. Really inspect then. I there is a little crack the dirt can ruin them. Check your brakes and make sure they are not worn down to the indicator.
Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints
can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and
dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints
days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a
click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and
accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack,
reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average
do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old
axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint
if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done.
Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.
it sure sounds like a cv joint. did he take apart the cv joint? ive had some that just drove me nuts. couldnt get them to make noise when off the ground. we ended up putting in a half shaft and cured the problem after a very long day. i dont like throwing parts at a problem but this was the only way we found this one.
