Question CV shaft?

I own a '90 Dodge Dynasty and have put insane amounts of work into it (it is definitely a true lemon.) I just had over 900 bucks worth of brake work done to it, new radiator, valve cover gasket, shocks, fuel injector, etc over the past year that I've had it. I finally thought I had everything fixed that needed fixing (according to a handy list provided to me by Firestone) and a few coworkers drove my car and claim I need a new CV shaft.

There's a bit of rattling under my feet by the floorboards as I drive over 35 and the CV shaft thing was suggested as the problem. I've looked everywhere online and can't find exactly what this CV shaft thing is, or if it's even possible that's what the problem is...or about how much replacing them/it would be. I'm completely car illiterate and have been screwed out of thousands fixing this stupid car over the past year, so any help would be great. Thanks guys.

I dont know if you guys say things differently to us, but here in the UK it's a "Constant Velocity Joint" and it's conected to the "Drive Shaft" on each side of the vehicle, at the front, on Front wheel drive cars!

MORON. "CV" does and always has stood simply for CONSTANT VELOCITY as in constant velocity joint. That's all. When you create an assembly containing two CV joints and one halfshaft or axleshaft you now have a CV axle assembly. "CV shaft" is a phrase made up and used by people who don't know the correct terminology and don't have the mental awareness to find out. Please stop spewing your special brand of bullsh*t on these forums NOW.
