Hmm. CV joint replacement or recent trans work, right? Didn't you have
clutch replacement not too long ago? Check the other side while you're at
it -- and the rear driveshaft flange as well.
Most CV joint failures (which by definition yours is not) I've seen involve
the front pass side (methinks more pot-hole related).
