    My driver's side cv axle blew after I installed my lift and I replaced that one with a direct replacement one from Advance. All was good for about a month (no clunking or weird noises) then it started making random popping/clunking noises like it did when my cv axle was blown. I checked the cv axle and it's not leaking or anything. It clunks a heck of alot when turning and clunks occasionally while driving on roads. Any ideas?

    A lil over 3 inches with bilstein 5100's and eibachs up front. Yes I do have a diff drop. I checked the ball joints on my uca's and my passenger one is ripped but the drivers side one looks fine and thats the one that's clunking... UCA's are added to my list now. But I don't know, for some reason I'm pretty set on it having something to do with the cv axle. My auto tech teacher installed it for me and I'm wondering if he didn't shove it back in all the way and it came loose...
