    That is usually an indication of the CV axle halfshaft joint going bad. The way to test it is to slide under the car and push hard up and down on eack CV axle at the joints while listening for noise at the joint. The rubber boots that cover the joints will most likely be torn also. The fix is to have the CV axle halfshaft replaced.
