Default 2007 Chevy Silverado Vortech max 4x4 noise in Rt front wheel

My 2007 Silverado has a feeling in the right front wheel that is like something needing greased or tighten up. You can feel it mainly when you ride over bumps and especially when you are in a left turn and not as much pressure is on the rt tire. I am not a mechanic, but it almost seems like the CV axle needs more grease. Is this something I can check or add. Also I just replaced the front/back struts/shocks.. Thanks for your help

Make sure the shock bolts are good and tight first, second if you think it's the CV axle, really those aren't maintenance items until they clunk around turns or the boots split open and they fling the grease out.

So if the CV boot is ripped and missing grease, you can technically replace the boot and repack the joint with grease, but I always replace the CV axle when that happens because of the damage that's already been done, and the fact that dirt has undoubtedly gotten in there and started some sand paper action in the joint.
