    noise during turning

    When ever I turn sharply, my T/A makes a noise like a Cv axle going out. I think it coming from the back. What is this?

    Your car is not a Civic, so no CV's lol. The front bearings/ hubs are one piece. The rear has 2 axles that are locked in by c-clips (or eliminators). No Cv's, but maybe wheel bearings or pinion bearing. Hell it could even be the U-joints on your driveshaft.

    An afterthought...My friends panhard bar/ driver side (rear) lower control arm were loose. It sounded like the rear was gonna fall out of the car. Just tightened them up and no problemo anymore.

    I just recently changed the CV's out of my Syclone, so I was just comparing noises.

    When I drove the car to the parts store, it didn't seem to make the noise...but I went ahead and got some additive. The only one I could find was lubrimatic Limited Slip Additive and ATP's additive. Which one should I get?
