Long story short, the dealer said that it is not the CV joint that is causing the noise, and that it could be any number of things causing the problem. (Camber, axle, lat links...). They told me that driving it will not leave me stranded. (funnay that they are sure of themselves on that one, but don't know what the prob is?)
Any ideas? I have a big drive to Maine next week (17-20 each way) and don't want to find out the problem in the back woods.
