CV joints are sealed to keep out dirt and lube in if its making noise at this point lube wont help ,well it might for a little while but It wont last ,fi you drive in a tight circle one to the left and one to the right you should hear a clicking noise do it with your window at about 10 mph or so and you'll be able to tell witch one it is. when you ask questions please include year make model and motor size all that really helps us here to answer better. good luck

SOURCE: front cv joint lubrication

you do not lube them they are full of grease.if boot tears and splatters the grease out then you replace boot or anymore just as cheap to replace axle. Some lube centers try and sell a lube service on these where they poke a hole in your boot and pump grease in them.This is a no no as it causes your joint to start leaking

My 96 range rover 4.0 SE makes a clunking noise when i take off only after it build speed it is totally quiet ...i was told to change the differential and did ...still hear the clunking and hesitation when...

Likely to be either a propshaft Universal Joint, or possibly a Constant Velocity Joint in the front axle.

Is it more of a noise when starting off (and moving slowly) when turning hard to the right or left? Whichever direction is worse, that side is the first place to check (the Constant Velocity CV joint in the swivel housing)

If both directions sound the same , check the propshaft joints.

1999 toyota camry I press gas pedal to go faster and ticking noise.i let off no noise.

You may have a defective Constant velocity joint, there are four of them, have them checked, likely one of the rubber boots that keeps the graeae in the joint is torn and the joint has run dry and it is ruined from lack of lubrication and this causes noise.

When taking a corner and turning the steeri ng to the left i am hearing a rattling sound (its not thels velocity ), also when driving through the rough roads.

Take a look (inspect) your CV boots. If one (or both) have split open and allowed the lubricant to excape (which keeps the CV joints lubricated), you may have a damaged CV joint. These joints are normally not replaced. Instead, a remanufactured axel is installed, especially if the joint is already making noise.

Click in front suspension when wheel is turned lt on a 06 RSX Acu

You have a constant velocity joint, which is located on the drive axle, that has a torn protective boot and the grease that was inside to lubricate the joint has leaked out. The joint now has no lubrication and is clicking due to metal to metal contact of the bearings and bearing cage in the joint. You'll ned to pull the axle and get it repaired or replace the axle.

Vibrating noise coming from either the engine or underneath

When the constant velocity joints are worn out. this is what u ussually get.

car vibrates if one or both are worn out. and vibration will increase as speed increases.

car will make a popping or tapping or clicking sound when steering.

Or they might just need lubrication too.

hope this helps XD

Sound when turning

Check for worn or damaged CV ( constant velocity ) joints at the ends of both front axles covered with rubber boots. Usually noisy due to loss of lubricant

When i turn my wheel to the right there is a clicking sound and when i hit the brakes the front end wobbles

Clicking noises are usually traced to the Constant Velocity joints (CV joints). Look at the rubber boots, one on each side. If the rubber boots are worn or have holes, you are heading for CV trouble. Sometimes just replacing the boots and re-lubricating the CV joints solves the problem. If the joins are worn, you could be looking at $500 or so each to replace.
