    Why not take it to a shop and have them inspect it? Most shops will do it for free these days. Either that or put it on jack stands and get underneath it and look for yourself.

    If it's worse when you turn the wheel, then yes, it's likely that it could be the CV joints. Like LS_VTEC said though, you should just get the car inspected (or do it yourself if you know what you're looking for)...

    You probably need to take it somewhere then. It sounds like it could be a CV joint, but I can't say for sure just from your description. You can try putting the car up on jack-stands and looking at the axles. If the rubber boots on either of them look damaged or torn, then that's probably what it is...

    Yes, many shops will do a "free maintance inspection" You dont have to buy whats needed from them but you will know whats wrong, then you can shop around for the lowest price, if not do it yourself. I loved doing them, so easy, bring the car in, see whats wrong, write it down and back it out.
