Hi,

When you indicate it was just serviced, what was done? As far as checking CV axle joints, if a visual inspection was done, chances are they inspected the boots to make sure there aren't damaged or leaking.

Are you having issues with a joint? If so, can you explain to me what is happening? The most common indication of a bad joint is a clicking sound when turning sharp. Here is a link that explains how the joint works:

Let me know.
