I just say nail as I had a similar thing happen.  I only heard it  
intermittently and seemed to depend on the type of pavement.  Mostly  
noticed at highway speeds, but it wasn't loud enough to be heard over  
the radio.  Could feel it in the steering wheel as well.  Felt like  
an out-of-balance tire.

I've never had an inner CV go out, but ya look for a tear.  Imagine  
it would sound like an outside CV going/
