New years eve, 10pm, 5 degrees, everything closed on New Years day (you get the idea - Murphy was NOT my friend) . . . Drivers Side CV Axle broke - luckily happened right in front of my house. Got it replaced that week.

NOW, passenger side is making similar clunking sound that driver's side made just before it broke; BUT doesn't make the clunking sound going straight or when turning very slowly, just in turns when accelerating (including slowly), AND it makes no sounds at all if in Neutral during same type turns. Am I looking at the passenger side axle now going bad (800 miles since driver's side) or something else to do with trans/axle system?

Check the CV boot on that side to see if it is rip
If it is ripped then probably the CV may need to be changed.

Clunking while turning and applying power is what you hear when a CV joint is failing. Even if the boot isn't ripped, the joint is going to fail. The old one must have been very loud for a while. You usually get some warning that it is failing.
