    Front end pop?

    Hey guys,

    I have had a pop noise several times this winter. The noise only happens when it is very cold and in reverse at full lock. It sounds like it is coming from a joint up front. I have not lifted the car and shaken it down yet. Does anyone know what this could be or have had this problem?

    Thanks!

    Whenever I've had a pop noise at full lock it's been an axle. However yours are practically new. Check the boots for integrity.

    I will when it stops snowing. I was thinking it could have been an axle but then I thought if it was an axle it would be doing it while moving as well?

    Full lock?
    Possible it's pad shift

    I don't think so? Its pretty loud and you feel it. It only does it one time though.

    Ya you wouldn't feel pads
    What's full lock mean? Is that when you turn your steering wheel all the way? If you don't mind me asking

    I have the same problem. Sounds like the spring is rotating against the top hat. Only happens from lock to lock. Mines under warranty still. I have to take it in.
