Clunking noise and feeling

Hey guys,

It's been a while, have a 96 accord V6 and I get a clunking noise and feeling when I turn to the right, only sometimes when I turn to the left.

Is this a bad axel? Does anyone have any good tutorials on how to replace one?

I need help...

Thanks,

Don

Its a bad CV boot! You can save the axle, depending on how long you've been running around with a bad CV Boot. I know there is s tutorial i just need to find it. I'll try to find it tomorrow.

First Check and see if it is in fact your CV boot that is bad here is a link to check your CV boot: http://www.samarins.com/glossary/cv_joint.html

Some people say to change the whole axle insted of just changing the boot which is on the axle. I have had my outter CV boot change twice and not untill I got the whole axle changed did the reaccuring (sp?) CV boot failure stopped.

This is what I found on another site but be foreworned I have never changed my axle or CV boot personally due to the fact I live on a HILL!

I can scan the manual for you but you can download it from this site and it will tell you everything... here:

Hope this helps

Boss,

Actuall after some lookin, I found the problem to be the front sway bar bushings. They were all but gone. I narrowed down the noise to sharp turns on bumps. We replaced the bushings and all is well.

Thanks for the efford though.
