[A4] Front wheel click

I'm pretty sure its not a stone or nail in the tire.  With the amount of
racket it makes (can here/feel it over the radio!) a nail would have to be
attached to a board and stuck in the tire.  :)  Like I said, it is only very
intermittent which makes it very difficult to track down.  One thought, does
anyone know what an inner CV joint sounds like when it goes out?  I'm
guessing that I'll have to jack it up and take a better look at the CV boots
and see if there is a tear or something.
