Anytime Im making a sharp turn or pulling out of a parking lot and turn left or right my wheels make this weird popping noise?? My dad said it may be a busted boot or something? This a easy fix or not?

CV axle boot/joints could be a couple of things. I've never messed with them. I just get a shop to replace them. From what I hear your better off replacing them instead of rebuilding them. I think what happens is the grease comes out of them and the friction makes them pop. I also think if you don't have the money to replace them right away you could not put power to them when you turn. I know when mine did that on my CRX a long time ago, I would just coast thru the turns and give it gas when the wheels were straight.
yeah axels. if the boot is just torn you can sometimes just buy a new boot for like $15, but you say yours is popping so u might have to replace the axles. its not too hard to take them off. u just have to have the right tools. u need a huge socket like a 20 or 22 cant really remember. but if you have basic mechanical knowledge u should be able to do it yourself
