Yeah, about $60 per side for mine as well...but those aren't really signs of a CV joint going...I have no grinding or popping noises when turning.

Humming, rumbling or growling. These noises are normally associated with tire, electrical or drivetrain components. If bearing-related, the noise or vibration is present when driving in a straight line, but intensifies when turning the steering wheel slightly to the left or right. Typically, the side opposite the rumbling is the defective side.

Mine hums when I hit 45 and lessens at 50 and goes away when making rh turns. Sounds easier if its wheel bearings.

If you are going to get bearings, I would recommend Timken. Be careful with the no name. You get what you pay for.

Ah Alright, It doesnt seem to affect too much so I'll wait a bit longer to do anything with it. I'm more worried about my maf at the moment

I was looking at Duralast

I've used them before, quite a bit, and never really had any issues. Do you have any negative stories attributed to Duralast?

it sounds like bearings and i would do both on a car that old any way, cv joints make more of a quick thump noise. and these days only extremely worn out bearings will allow movement in the tire. unless you have a dodge truck then the wheel just falls off while your going down the road.
