They are telling you that the boots probaly are ripped or came loose. This will cause dirt to get into it and eventualy ware out the cv joint this is easily noticed during a brake job. If your mech. Told you it was something to think about instead of it needs to be replaced right away then keep him. They will start to click when turning when they ware out
