Check you cv axels

put the cars front end up on jackstands , put on the parking brake, then put the car in neatral with the key in "on" but dont start.

grab the wheel and turn it where you can see the axle behind, look for any damage, there should be a pleaed rubber boot if not there is your problem.
if the boots are in place try spiining the wheel by hand it you hear noises then it is a good sign that it is bad.
one last test grab the axel with your hand and try to move it if it wiggles in your hand it is bad

good luck
