Constant-velocity joints, (cv joints) are on the half shafts. They don't have anything to do with the steering. Look inside each front wheel for signs of grease sprayed all over and the rubber accordion boot torn apart. If you shift into first gear with the engine running, if the joint is broken you'll hear the half shaft turning and possibly banging around, and if you look underneath you'll see the shaft spinning on one side of the car. It's supposed to be turning that wheel.
