As I am slowing down I am hearing a popping noise comming from the passenger side near the wheel. Sounds like it did before I had my lower balljoints replaced, what is the life expectancy on these things? That was done about 5-6 months ago. After reading Stevens thread I must ask on 2wd could it be the tie-rod ends or the upper balljoints? Remember go easy I have no mechanical skiiz whatsoever. I have 8000 miles left under warranty. I just dont want to take it in and sound stupidier than I do here LOL. Any suggestions or ideas to minimize my stupidity would be appreciated.
Lol this is a fun subject. I had that poping noise for about 3 months and from dealer to dealer I got a different story from tie-rod ends to upper ball joints. About 4 days ago I got my spindles replaced by fabtech 3'' lift spindles and t-bars lowered and the noise went away. I asked 4wp to check for any broken worn out parts but they found nothing. I have no advice for you but get fabtech spindles and it will magicaly go away.
Well every since I put the new rims on I have had a new "squeaking" noise when go over speed bumps and dips in the road, the popping noise started about 2 weeks ago, I have the rims about 6 months? Could this be a combined problem?
