Q: Passenger side Drive Axle clicking on 2001 Volvo S60

I recently started experiencing a vibration when accelerating particularyly uphill. I raised car and when looking for loose or worn joints found tht the drive axle is loose as it enters one of the boot covered joints. Loud clicking sound as well. Does just the CV joint need to be replaced or is it easier to just replace the entire drive axle. Or are the systems indicating another issue.

CHANGE THE WHOLE AXLE AND BE DONE WITH IT, CLICKING SOUNDS LIKE A BAD OUTER JOINT, BUT WHEN INNER JOINTS ARE BAD YOU'LL GET A VIBRATION ON ACCEL, AN AXLE FOR THIS CAR INSTALLED IS ONLY ABOUT 200 BUCKS. HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL.
