The original CV boots on my 2009 Chevy Impala LTZ are still intact at 181k miles. The only time the CV axles make some popping noise is when I make a slow turn and one of the wheels happens to drop into a depression or a pothole at the same time. This is very rare and only happened a few times. I suspect this happens because the CV joint is turning sharply and also experiencing sudden vertical jolt at the same time, which overloads and momentarily binds up the joint. Other than that the axles do not make any noise when driving. And they should not make any popping of clicking noises.
