Re: Drivers side CV (GTXMAN)

Makes some hard turns in both directions. That should clue you in a little better. Turn the wheel all the way when making the turns. It's bad for good cv's to do this so a bad cv will ring in pretty quickly.

Re: Drivers side CV (DURELL)

Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand with the steering wheel turned all the way to each side. You should be able to feel it. Mine did the same thing a few months ago. I was using a goofy half-scissors style spare tire jack and it slipped and put a hole right through my floor board. My recommendation: use a good jack.
