Complaint - Power Train, Suspension

AT 45000 MILES I NOTICED A POPPING NOISE IN THE FRONT END (PASSENGER SIDE) WHEN I MADE A LEFT TURN. I TOOK IT INTO MY MECHNIC AND HE SAID THE CV SHAFT WAS GOING OUT, BUT IT WOULD TAKE AWHILE BEFORE IT DID. IT DIDNT GET WORSE FOR AWHILE, NOW AT 62000, THE FRONT END HAS A HORRIBLE SHAKING, PULLS TO THE RIGHT SIDE, POPS ALL THE TIME AND THE TIRE ON THAT SIDE MAKES A WEIRD FLAPPING NOISE, IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE THE TIRE ITSELF IS OUT OF ROUND OR SOMETHING, AND IT IS WEARING SMOOTH ON THE INSIDE OF THE TIRE. I HAVE BEEN DOING SOME RESEARCH AND IT SEEMS OTHER MALIBU OWNERS ARE HAVING THE EXACT SAME PROBLEMS, IS THIS A SAFETY ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE UNDER RECALL? IS GM AWARE OF THIS ISSUE?
