I think the CV joint on the drivers side is knacked.
When turning i am getting a cracking/grating sort of noise.
All bushes and arms replaced recently,drop links as well.
When go straight ahaead its fine just when i turn at a junction.
Would you change the joint or full driveshaft?

Thanks

well the drive shaft is in 2 parts a metal rod type bit from the gearbox to a bracket with 2 nuts on it then u got the rest of the shaft going to the hub just after this bracket bit u got a chunky metal bit on the shaft hit that and it should seperate the shaft shouldnt be hard atleast then you dont need to empty the gearbox oil plus when u get a new shaft you dont get the rod bit.

hope you understand what i mean lol.
