If you have a decent jack you can try this.

Chock front wheel, car in neutral, place jack under rear of car and lift slightly. Turn the wheel by hand and listen for your issue. CV joint will give you a clicking sound. If you need a new half shaft let us know. From dealer @ $500 a pop. Used or rebuilt much cheaper.
