You don't know about it..

Default Bad if I let it go?

When I turn right, I get a loud clicking from the right front wheel. Like something is binding.

I figure it's the CV joint (I did have a torn boot and had it replaced) that went bad.

My question is whether or not it is OK to let it go.

I am at college and not only am I a poor student, but I don't have the time to drive all the way home to my mechanic and leave my car there.

Cool to let it go?

It's been going on for a pretty long time and hasn't caused any major problems yet. Do I even HAVE to get it fixed?

I had the same problem and was bracing to pay hundreds for the repair... turned out to be a $9 repair.

Default axle

well if you are willing to take a chance at being stranded on the side of the road somewhere, then dont worry about it, but the joint is bad and can fail tommorrow or 6 months from now, recommend replacing with a subaru reman axle which sells for approx 180.00, good luck

Changing axles is EASY!!! And you can get a new reman axle from www.cvaxles.com for $55 with a lifetime warranty...
