Popping noise  Topic is solved

Post by GlennG2759 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:00 am

I recently started getting a light clunking/popping noise on the left side of 94' 850 NA 179k. Seems to be coming fro driver seat forward. Not an engine noise but something coming from the either suspension or chassis. It's does not get any less or more with braking or accelerating and goes away altogether at speeds over 15 mph. It does not get any worse at turns, no vibrations and drives straight as an arrow on highway. Seems more prevalent at very slow speeds over bumps. New ca's, struts, tie rod ends, end links, exhaust system tight, all motor mounts (5) and sub-frame bushing inserts in past 8k. I just installed drivers side cv axle because of torn boot, which took the little vibration I had away. I was underneath last nite pushing and pulling on stuff no looseness. **When installing axle I dropped the control arm to frame not ball joint, when reinstalling CA I jacked up knuckle assembly to almost horizontal and torqued to spec. Any ideas. Thanks in advance.
