RE: CV joints?
Changing your cv joint/shaft isnt that hard to do, and will run you under 100 bux at most parts stores. To change it all you need to do is remove the nut in the center of the hub on the given shaft, jack the car up, unbolt the lower ball joint so you can get the cv shaft out, pull it out and pop the new one in. Its really easy to do, make sure you have a bucket or catch pan of some sort under the trans when you pull the shaft out tho, because it will leak. When you are complete make sure to check your trans fuild aswell.
