I'm wondering if anyone has an idea what might be causing the left CV joint to be going bad, other than poor parts. (1990 GT, 2.2 5sp - DD, no racing) This is the second one I've installed and it has gone south after approx 3000 miles as did the first one.

Bad mounts. What is going "bad" they start clicking on corners?

Yes squeeking at highway speed,and the click/knock/klunk at low, more when turning to the right. Looked at mounts front and back, and yeah they don't look too healthy, easy change - left and right easy too but not as available.
