Makes a funny noise every time I turn. It's a kind of thumping noise, and louder when I make lefts.

I'd bet it's your CV joints going out... Have you looked at your CV boots to see if they are busted or not? That would be a good start, look under each front wheel with the wheel turned out and look at the CV boot, make sure it's not torn up.

That's it! I have the same Accord (92) and the CV boots are always going bad--and replace them every year. If I didn't replace them every year I'd have bad CV joints.

Probably your CV joints. I had an Accord they went out on and it did this. If I recall, it was not too costly for parts or labor.

I looked up the price for the half shaft and they are only $59 for either side at Oreilly's. You will then have to pay for labor to put them in.

Back in the late 1990s when I owned my 1986 Accord (that needed them) it was like $70 per side labor.
