Your car has bad front axles. The rubber boot covering the outer CV joint breaks and dirt and water get in and ruin the joint. The repair is approximately $250 per side. May only need one.

Thanks so much..now to find $250.00!

Axle shafts (with CV joints) may be purchased for approx. $75-$85. The rest is labor.
