Default CV shafts???

Hmm...car has been making a creeking sound from the front, sometimes just after getting on it in a straight light, sometimes when turning, under tourque sometimes..it sounds to me like CV shafts maybe?

No one? Has anyone replaced any on a 1997 before?
It does it when accelerating turning left, almost everytime now.

could be strut bearings. lift the front end so the front tires are off the ground. now have someone turn wheels all the way left and right, looking and listening to the top of the struts in the wheel well. do they look like they are moving smoothly?

I'll check that tomorrow for sure, Travis.
You know it almost always happens ONLY at the 1st-2nd gear interchange, even in a straight line sometimes...

While you're checking around the struts, check the spring seats for wear, also.

I just had to have a CV joint replaced on my 99 SE...I first noticed the problem because when taking a fast/sharp turn, you could feel a shudder in the steering wheel. Unfortunately, wasn't able to diagnose the problem myself...had to rely on my mechanic. :(

Tyipcally a CV will make a clicking noise, not a groan, moan or rubbing sound.

Check play in the wheel bearing, strut mount and spring as mentioned.
