    Possibly driveshaft, could very easily be the CV joint itself.

    Lowered car by any chance? Passenger side inner rubber boot thats gone? Seems to be abit common really when cars are quite heavily lowered.

    Mine used to eat them when i had the 1.8 engine in, and is equally if not worse as bad with the ZLET engine in.

    If yours happens to be a ZLET, could just be you need a replacement boot, from what we have discovered the joint makes some real strange noises without a boot fitted, but once a new one is in place its fine again!
