big problem

tonight when i was leaving a tim hortons i pulled out on a weird angle, and my drivers side made this weird clunk noise and kinda jerked, then for the rest of the nuight when i would accelerate it would clunk and then jerk everytime, only when accelerating and would only do it once and awhile but everytime around a corner, anyways we were on our way home going around a corner and it started doing it every 2 seconds and now the car wont move at all, the noise is comming from the drivers side front wheel, you let the clutch out and everything which seems fine and normal and the car will roll for like 2 seconds then start clunking and not move at all........any ideas as to what it is or could b?.........right now shes sittin in a parking lot till morning wen i decide what to do with it............any ideas?..........axle?............cv joint?.......this is on a 2000 sir btw if it matters

I can get them for $90 each.
It takes me about 15 minutes to change an axle.

LOL! You need more hammer J!


Also, all used-rebuilt axels are not rebuilt using the same quality parts. Some rebuilders use cheaper parts than others...just a word or warning. Get a set with warrenty!
