Popping Noise When Turning Steering Wheel
If you hear a pop noise when turning, it’s usually due to a worn component connected to your suspension system. The bearings in worn CV joints can pop in and out of place as the axle bends with the wheel. Worn strut mounts are hard to rotate, binding and then releasing in turns. This also happens with worn bearings and joints in the steering column. When ball joints and tie rod ends wear down, they create space between the ball and the cup. These parts bump against each other as you change the steering angle.
