Bad inner CV joint fresh from the shop?

    Hello,

    I just yesterday got my 93 Subaru Imprezza (front wheel drive) back
    from my auto shop. It had been in for a few reasons. My starter was
    failing, it made clicking noises when accelerating around turns, and it
    was up for inspection.

    They replaced the starter and my two front axles. The starter is
    working fine but I have a new clicking noise when I have to accelerate
    from stop either moderately to quickly. It sounds similar to the
    clicking I had when going around turns prior to the replacement axles
    but with a much deeper tone and even appearing when accelerating on
    straight-aways.

    I'm not much of a car person but I've done a little research. The
    clicking I had before were bad outer CV joints I think. From what I'm
    reading it's possible and even likely that my new noise is the result
    of a bad inner CV joint. Does anyone have any insight or suggestions
    of things I should check before I call back my shop?

    Thanks.

    I'm no expert, but bad CV joints are usually preceded by torn boots. I'd
    give em a good look.
