    Default Cuore inner cv joint repeated noise

    Cuore 06, passenger side inner cv joint starts clunking within a year after replacement.
    Car has been owned for more than past 8 years.
    This problem was not there untill 2012 when its left and right outer CV joints were changed.
    After a few months of that the inner cv joint started making noise and also there was steering shake above 80kmph
    Wheels replaced and balanced, steering rack serviced, front shocks changed but the steering wobble does not go away.
    Left inner cv joint replaced twice with original NKN in past three years. Clunking goes away but returns after about one year.
    Could this indicate a bent axle shaft or something with the transmission bearing?
    How can the problem be isolated?

    Did you check engine mounts? Spacer in suspension?

    Gear side mount was changed two years ago. Other mount is fine as per mechanic. But he just inspected visually and did not try to pry up anything
    Is there any proper way to check the mounta
    Also no spacer in suspension

    Ask someone to help you open hood of car tell your helper to sit inside the car ask him put car in gear and play with clutch and break (leave clutch and press it the idea is to make engine apply torque without moving car) if the engine moves more than 4 inch than mount are bad
