Front End Makes Pop Sound

1993 1/2 ton with a 4" lift. It makes a popping sound when the tire is turned at low speeds. Yeah CV axle came to mind but it make the same noise when i back out of my driveway straight. the tire seems to squeel alot when going slow. Something inside the front diff? Idler arm? or CV axle? WHat do ya think?

Re: Front End Makes Pop Sound

I have the same problem and have narrowed it down to worn out ball joints all around and te Idler arm. Make sure that you have all day or the weekend as well as a lot of ools and the proper parts before you start ripping the front end apart. I got my parts from Auto Zone and most of them have a lifetime warranty.
Good Luck, Michael
