    Popping/binding when in reverse

    I have a popping/binding noise coming from my car (06 WRX, 5MT). Thus far it has only happened in reverse, and has also only happened when the car is cold (sat overnight / more than an hour). It doesn't feel like it's hesitating to move - my driveway is on an incline - but I can FEEL and hear two quick pops in the car whenever I'm turning and backing up slowly.

    Try as I might, I cannot get the car to do this once it is warmed up OR while moving forwards - I tried doing slow turns at lock in first and reverse with the car warmed up and could not replicate the problem.

    Edit: Also, it only does this once when it's cold, as though something is popping back in the place. Maybe I should try parking without the e-brake set to see if it's sticking? It has been pretty cold here the past couple of nights.
    Any ideas?

    yea, it could be the shoes sticking. most people pay no attention to their parking brake setup. wouldn't be a bad place to look.
    I work on vehicles that make 650hp and 2400ft/lbs.
