if it's to the point where it's making a clicking, I would say just replace the axle...what do you mean where do you find either of them? do you mean on the vehicle or to buy?

Its the CV joint that finally pooped out on your axles. The boot is not not going to click as it is rubber, but you do need to check your CV boots from time to time to make sure they are still intact. If they rot or tear they will not longer hold the grease you need for the CV joints.

^^exactly. If i could add to that, the reason the CV joint usually goes bad is because the boot ripped open and the centripital force slings all the grease (or as I like to call it - devil piss) out of it. Then the CV joints lose all the lubricant.You can add rubber protectant (even tire shine formulas) to the boot to increase the life and prevent dry-rotting. when you replace the axle, the whole CV joint and boot is all swapped out to. You will pay a little more up front b/c the store will have a core charge, but when you bring them the old one you will get the core charge back. it'll be about $120.00 and $60.00 or so of that will be the core charge.
