Default 98 CR-V cv?

My wifes girlfriend has this car and there is a terrible thunking from the front driver side. You can feel it when driving and on acceleration. It's even noticeable when looking at the wheel, you can see it move just a little bit. I was thinking of replacing the entire shaft from the tranny to the wheel.

A. Is there something else I should also consider as the problem?
B. How difficult would replacing it be? This would be a driveway fix.
C. Should I tell her to junk it out and get a Jeep? Ha Ha

Thanks for all your help.

So nobody knows anything about this? What a sad forum. I am thoroughly disapointed.

This sound like an engine mount is bad. I had a 2004 Odessey that had this problem. If not then look at the CV boot. Turn the wheel to the left and look at the boot. If there is a tear in the boot then there is you problem. I would suggest replacing the whole axle. Have a shop do it, because you will need to get an alignment afterwards. Also check the other side aswell. If the other side is torn might as well repalce both at one time..

Engine mount? Could that cause a rythmatic thumping? I don't really do work on these kind of cars, but I am helping her out because she has 2 kids and a car that is not all that reliable. It's had the springs cut to lower it and is sitting on 17" wheels with 40 series tires. I am looking to return the tires to stock and get this car a little more reliable before winter.

Thanks for all your input.
