Welcome to the Legend forums! As your personal helper for the day, I'll try to answer your questions.

1. If your CV joint is clicking or popping when you turn, go to Auto Zone or Advanced Auto Parts and buy a half shaft. About $70. Do you know which side is going bad? Take it to a local shop and have them install it, shouldn't be more than $50 for the install.

2. I had the same idling problem with my 89 sedan, When I would put it into park, sometimes the engine would rev from 500 rpm to 1500 rpm back and forth until it either leveled out, or it stalled, I took it to my friend that had a mechanic shop and he did a few things, charged me $20 and it never happened again, Try having a trusted local shop or the dealership take a look at it to see if they can pinpoint it.

Hope this helps, Ask any more questions if you need to.
