Do you mean like over bumps? If so, on a CV I would suspect lower control
arm bushings. I don't think it will have any grease fittings. You really
should take it to a front end/alignment shop to have it checked out. You can
easiely check the bushings by checking to see if the bolt that goes through
the bushing is centered to the bushing. It should be.
