Pop the CV shaft out and rotate it at that extreme angle, you'll know right away if that's the cause.
That works. Another way to check it is to drive the vehicle in a very tight circle slowly with the steering wheel all the way to the lock. First in an extreme left circle then in a extreme right circle. If one of the CV joints are shot you will hear a distinct clunking on one side versus the other.

X3 lol. Jayme, in my life , I've seen far more wheel bearrings go out than half shafts. As long as the rubber isn't torn on a half shaft, I have not seen or heard of one going out. It is possible, but not as probable as a wheel bearing.
