I have what i think is cv grease splashing on my passanger underside area. It really got all over where the vacuum lines for the cbv are.

I also have a clicking sound while driving. I hear it when there is a wall or even house next to me. it sounds somewhat like a zip tie in the spokes of a bicycle.

I believe its my cv going out on that side but if anyone could chime in on there thoughts on the sound that would be awesome.

I get no clunking or bumping when turning, just the constant ticking while driving.

A> check your motor mount, those will break and are responsible for leaking and cause all sorts of noises (you can open the hood and check the sticky for what it looks like to have a blown mount). B> visually inspect your CV joint/ boot to determine if thats the source if your motor mount looks good. (Typically the boot will tear like I stated in the other thread).

My boot wasn't torn, but the clamp started to loosen, so grease was getting out from the boot. The clicking makes me suspicious of a bad CV.

I would check the tires to make sure you didn't pick up a pebble or nail first. If you've lost all the CV grease and contaminants managed to get inside the joint, then failure is likely.

You can jack the entire front end up and spin the tires slowly to see if you can pin point the source of this clicking.

well I removed my front lower control arm to measure the ball joint and verify that the bushing were worn and I noticed the axle spline and bearing was dry. I greased everything back up and viola ticking is gone. I think I will do the other three tmrw. So problem solved. I think just removeing the bolt to the spline and shoving some grease in there would even do the trick for people in the future.
