Default 1990 Camry Clicking Sound during slow tight turn

My son's 1990 camry has a clicking sound momentarily at slow speed during a
tight turn. Never hear it very often just under these combination of
events. Do I have a drive shaft spline going bad or a CV joint dying on
me. I'll check the boot tomorrow.

If its clicking already you'll probably need the CV joint and a drive
shaft...

I've pulled drive shafts on manual tranny front wheel drives but never
automatic tranny's. Is it basically the same job only heavier?

Also, how hard is it to reband the CV boots after replacing the joints and
do you need a special tool.

If anyone else has accomplished a CV replacement, please let me know what
I am in for or point me to the right link. Thanks.

Sorry, I won't be much help there. I had it done at a shop for $270.
