MAC Posted February 25, 2009 Report Share Posted February 25, 2009 I'm getting frustrated because I have been unable to isolate the popping sound that seems to be emanating from the right (passenger) side, particularly when I make a turn. At various times this sound will also occur when I accelerate and brake. If I swing the steering wheel from left to right while driving I will hear this popping sound that seem to be coming from both sides, but mostly from the right. I don't know if it a ball joint or maybe even a strut because 1) there is no obvious uneven tire ware indicating a ball joint problem. Given the loudness of the popping, if it was a ball joint I figure that I would have ruined the tires a long time ago; and 2) when I go over bumps the struts don't make any sounds as though there is something wrong internally. I also hear what sounds like a squeaking sound too. Maybe the springs are worn? But mostly the popping is happening every day, all the time, and I need to figure this out and fix it. Is it possible that I have bad ball joints but I'm simply not seeing the obvious signs? Edit: It seems that there is also some movement at times of the right wheel, particularly when making sharp turns at a moderate speed. I already replaced the hub/bearing assembly last fall.
