CV Joint? Help Please

I sometimes hear a knocking noise when I'm slowing down to a stop. I've heard this could be a warn CV joint. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and how bad is it to fix.

CV joints usually click under accelerating load, especially during turns. More likely to be a brake issue from what little you're describing... Is it a new JK?

Unless it clicks around turns I'd shy away from thinking its a CV joint. You don't have to accelerate durning the turn to hear the clicking, either. I've heard plenty of cars click when roudning corners on a roll in neutral.
