What does a CV joint going bad act like? How does it act as it starts to fail,,,, I'm having a intermittent metalic clang when I start to move from a stopped position. It will mostly occur when I'm turning and starting to move forward. Does not always make the sound maybe 10% of the time it does it. I found all the suspension pivot points to be tight and the wheel hub nuts tight. At times it will do that when I shift from 1st to 2nd only,,,, I know what the shift clang is and this is different.

I can play with it and get it do make the clang,,,,if I back up and start forward and turn I can get it to make the noise. Sounds something like there is something loose and the gap takes up and the noise is from that.

did you ever figure this out?
No I never did and 3500 miles later I will at times hear the clang, in fact I now do not pay any notice to the noise I guess my mind has blocked it out of consciousness LOL. I'm more concerned with my drive shaft yokes throwing a bearing cup. Tomorrow I will get it up on a lift and get under it and tac weld the cups,, I have a Utah trip planned in Sept and I for sure do not need a drive shaft issue ruining the trip.
Thanks for Asking :)
