Thread: Steering Pop

  1. #1

    Default Steering Pop

    Ok, so when I went home on leave and finally got to drive my truck, I would notice a little pop in my steering. It happens at very low speeds like 0-10MPH. It does it in forward and reverse and happens when I'm like backing out of a space or turning into the driveway. I feel it a little bit in the steering wheel and some in the gas pedal.

    My dad and brother (both very competent mechanics) changed the inner tie rods, upper ball joints and a few other things but I'm not sure.

    Is this the steering column knock you are feeling or more in the suspension?

    Feels like its in the suspension. Mostly sounds like it comes from the front left tire when I have the window down. I can replicate it if I really tried to.

    Might be the wheel bearing. Is it four wheel drive? Maybe a CV joint?
