    CV axles will fail if boots ripped and rebuilt is only about $70 its the install that costs. Have to pull the brakes, hub, and the spindle off to get it out which means popping teh ball joints off too. If they haven't been done time for them now too.
    As for pulling there is little protection under the vehicle so the steering linkage could be loose/worn, mud on the inside of rims and brake calipers, balance weigh was lost, alignment off, etc.
