You posted that you "lost a boot on the pass. side axle the other day" in the "Need to change c/v axles" thread. It sounds like the CV joint on that side is about ready to let go ("turning or changing lanes to the left its almost twice as loud"). I'd be hesitant to drive it in that condition. If you need a DIY how-to on the axle, get a repair manual (Chilton or Hayens) or subscription to online DIY sites like alldatadiy.com or eautorepair.net.
