Anybody have any experience with front CVs going bad, but without torn
boots and/or any play in the joints?
Our wagon has been making a lot of noise from the right front when
going around corners. At first it was just going around left hand
corners, but now it seems to be making as much noise going around
right turns too. It's not a clicking noise as I've heard with some
vehicles with bad CVs, but more of a roar, roar, roar that diminishes
as the wheels go back to straight. There is a bit of vibration in the
steering wheel too when cornerning.
The sound definately seems like it is coming from the corner of the
car, but could the problem be differential related instead? I'm not
familiar with FWD diffs, but the sound reminds me of noises my RWD van
made when it had bearings going out in the rear diff.
I've had the car on jackstands and checked the CVs carefully for torn
boots and looseness anywhere in the frontend and it all seems tight.
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
