Ride: BF XR6 TURBO

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

hey guys i have a BF xr6 turbo currently on 180xxx kms. Today after some "spirited" driving i notice a clicking sound coming from the rear of the car on take of from a complete stop. It doesnt make that sound any other time and when it does the rear end jumps each time it makes the noise.

If i baby the car it doesnt do this. I have been informed that it is most probably the CV joints.

Just wondering a few things. Could it be anything else? What am i looking at to get it fixed? How long can i drive the car for (if at all)?

watts link bush is the most common culprit on the B and F series. A mate has a dead bush after 15,000 km in his FG F6.. :x

Hahahahah best advice I heard in a long time. Taking it to a diff place tommorow to fit it looked at properly. Hope it doesn't s**t itself on the way. Thanks for the help I'll let you know how it goes.
