    I have been searching and searching for answers to this problem for months and cannot seem to get a good answer.
    2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with about 145k miles on it. When backing out of our driveway (up a slight incline and turning to the right), I get a clicking/rattling sound from the front passenger side of the vehicle. I’ve taken it to parking lots forming tight turns in circles, but cannot seem to reproduce the noise, yet it has steadily gotten worse.
    I have pulled the tire and inspected the suspension, but see nothing obvious (split CV boot, loose parts, grease), though I did replace a sway bar link that was split. I suspect that the CV axle shaft on that side is bad, but is it possible that it would only produce noise in that circumstance?
    Thoughts? Advice? Any help is much appreciated!

    Well, after more hours of researching, I’ve convinced myself that the right side CV axle is indeed bad. I’ll look for other obvious problems as I take it apart, but my hope is that I’m on the right track.
