You'll get clacking whenever you turn...especially at full turn, slow speed. You'll get a light knock as the vehicle coasts wheich will get worse until the joint fails altogether. If there's grease, you should be able to see if the boot OS cracked. Pry the ridges apart on the black ridged boot covering the joint and you'll see if it needs changing or not. If there's cracks, then dirt and water has gotten in and destroyed the joint.
