I usually find on Honda's this is caused by the bottom ball joint,
and the THEY SNAP OFF!!!
Of course this isn't good as not only does your car do a Bamby on ice impression but it can pull the drive shaft apart as well!!
And Honda inner driveshaft bearings are not cheap.
The only kind of test I know involves WD40ing the bottom ball joint and see if it still squeaks.
I've had two do this this past year,both recent passes on mot's so there's no wear to feel.
