Popping noise while turning at low speeds

theres is a popping/squelching noise coming from the front of the car while in am doing turns at low speed. usually lock to lock while maneurvering out of a parking lot, or turning right at a stop sign.

it sounds like it is coming from the left front side of the car. but the front in general for sure. will try to get a vid inside and outside of the car tomorrow.

i have taken the transmission out and done a clutch swap on my own, that required removing the motor/trans mounts and such. could it be on is not properly tightened all the way? also, i recently went to lower offset wheels and changed the scrub radius and increased the effort on the pump (and im assuming the rack as well)

thanks for any help you guys can offer

Damn these warmer temperatures are spawning all kinds of noises this week!

I am in for the strut, ball joint, bearing, and/or doobie conversation!

Hah, now that I have had since day one! Full stock to full suspension. Anytime I turn right going up or left going down. Some spots make a horrid sound, but typically just a pop.

Same here, backing out or turning into a tight parking spot, and all sorts of click/clack noises from the steering. I've only put 2,000 miles on the ODO.

damn. i was looking at some other new thread and they were talking about the factory struts/ball joints being pos's. i know when i re-assembled my strut the first time i didnt torque the camber bold correctly and it fell out sometime during a 200mile drive and i finished the drive without noticing too much. i was worried that i may have a strut about to go out

Either:

A. Leaking/Bad strut.
B. Strut tower brace flexing.

Just got done with this, like 2 days ago.

I had this same issue on another car. I would suspect your ball joints and tie rod ends! No harm getting them inspected.

What size rims are you running? You lowered? It could be the wheel is clipping the wheel well plastic at full tilt.
