Front cv joint began "clicking" about a month ago.  Only occurs upon start 
from stop with wheels turned.  I now baby it.  How long to go before it 
breaks?  What are the symptoms of impending failure?  What happens when it 

This is on a 1988 5KSQ (non-turbo).

Might as well buy a rebuilt halfshaft.  Somebody recently posted a cheap 
price for these - around $100.  I don't mind replacing the halfshaft.  It's 
getting the cv joint off the shaft that I mind.
