Its cheaper to replace the whole axle then both joints, aves ya time in the long run.
Yup... $64.00 an axle at autozone + about 2 hours of your time.

yea, i kinda figured it would be the axle, but wasn't shure as to why the noise would be there while i am going straight. i already got a new axle, just can't get the 32 mm bolt off.

You will have to go to autozone a buy a 32m socket, and if you have a impact gun it will make life ALOT easier! Make sure you have a ball joint remover, cause you'll needed to take out the shaft. Good luck

2nd opinion

here's another thought.... you might want to check your wheel studs, are they loose? if they are that's the source of your prob, i just fixed this recently, my car made the same noises in the same situations exactly. i changed the studs and everything went away all for less than $10.00.

This might sound stupid, but what are wheel studs? My car is making the same sound just wondering what it could be?

hey man we're all here to learn...... wheel studs are what you attach your lug nuts to. if the lugs spin when you attach them, the stud(s) need to be replaced or you can damage the hub.

could be as simple as a rip cv boot.
when all the grease is flung out of the boot,
the joints rub against each other and cause the noise.
