Ahhhhh, the good ol' fashined failing honda CV joint.

Most late 80's/early 90's honda owners are familiar with that sound. My CRX did the same thing, I drove it like that for three years...Point is, check your CV boots, make sutre they are still sealed around the wheel hub (which they wont be) and make sure they are still packed with grease (which they won't be).

Now that you see the boot is all flappy and not connected at all, repack it with grease, which you could get at AutoZone ( just tell them whats happening and what you need) Then reseal the Boots over the hub.

If your boots are torn, then you have a much more complicated procedure, so check first, if they're not then you're good. If they are, then post here and Ill tell you what you need to do.
