Knocking Noise Coming from Front End
I am having some trouble with a knocking noise coming from the steering or front end components of my truck. Recently, about 6 months ago, I replaced the front ball joints and cranked the torsion bars almost if not to max.
Now for about a month if I have the steering wheel cranked all the way to the right or left, I get a knocking or popping noise coming from the front end components or steering stuff. Any ideas where I could start looking for problems? The Ranger currently has 115K on it. So could the steering bushings or tie rods or something need to be replaced? Or could this be due to me cranking the torsion bars too much and adding stress to the front suspension? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
