look at them, if they are broken/split they
need replacing. they will not make noise.
If you leave the broken boot on there for
long dirt and water will accellerate the
wear on the bearings,Those will make
noise, then you have a bigger repair to do..

You'll see rubber split at the seams and grease spraying out
when the boots go --- and the joint goes shortly there after
from grit/grime. If they have lots of miles on them or are
cheap aftermark rebooted ones -- they could have excess wear
and would click when driving and move back and forth when
you grab them (a little movemnt is normal).

Actually, there is no sound which will tell you if the boots are bad; the CV joint start making noise a while after the BOOT goes bad. At that point it is too late. The CV Joint needs to be replaced.

What you can do is check the boots regularly, if their bad, have them replaced [if you don't like to do that job yourself.
Another thing you can do, is to check the inner side of the rim, if you see grease all over that part of the rim, it means the boot has broken.

Remember, don't wait until you start hearing the "clack-clack-clack" noise when you make turns; then it will be too late.
