Default Clicking noise when turning

Hi all,

My 94 Honda Accord LX is starting to make a pretty loud clicking noise
when I turn the car. More when I turn left then right but I can hear
it when I turn it right as well.

So based on what I've read so far on this board, it seems like it's
most likely a CV Joint or boot, related problem.

I called up Precision Tune (Billerica, MA) and they said they would
most likely have to replace the whole axle (front left and right
possibly) with a quote of approximately $250 per axle. They said it
would be more cost effective to replace the whole axle considering the
labor involved in replacing individual parts. Am I getting the sucker
treatment here? Assuming the axle should be replaced, does this sound
like a reasonable price?

I don't know what kind of parts they will use. Ideally I'd like to
buy a part myself and have it installed by someone but not sure how
I'm going to find a mechanic to do that.

Anybody from the area around Billerica, MA that know of a good shop or
mechanics that they recommend?

Finally, what other options do I have? I don't have a whole lot of
time to do the work myself nor the right tools so doing it myself if
pretty much out of the question.

Thanks for any suggestions.

just had both axles replaced-cost about $450. mechanic (whom I trust) said
better to replace axles than just cv joints. these were rebuilt axles.

i think they got parts from Napa. they said new axles were out of sight as
far as cost.

i am not in your area.

I had the clicking sound return shortly after replacing the right axel
(under $60 at advance lifetime warranty). I looked closly to see what was
going on since the boots looked fine and what I found was the motor mounts
were broken. The result was the trans and engine was shifting and binding
the CV joints when I turned hard while accerating.

Just somthing else to look out for.
