Popping

When I'm turning at slow speeds I can feel a "pop" in the floor board and also hear it. I'm reduing the brakes this weekend but don't think that's it. Could it be the wheel bearing? My father in law said the right wheel felt hot but the left felt cool.

Have you already started doing the brakes before the noise or no... Wheels bearings wouldn't normally "pop" .. More like a hum or squeak. Popping is most likely going to be metal hitting metal somewhere.

Can you tell where it comes from? (IE front right)

I'm not really sure what would cause a popping from up there. Grab things like your front drive shaft, steering stabilizer, track bar, control arms, etc.. And see if any have play. If not, I would just starting take things off and inspecting them for damages then put it back on. Hopefully you will find something with a bad bushing or bearings.

Could also be something as simple as a loose shock.

I'd check where the track arm bolts to the front axle( have someone wiggle the steering wheel left to right to where it almost turns the wheels while you watch the bolt). Also check where the control arms mount, the bolt holes could be egg shaped letting it move under pressure.

If turning and a pop and not in 4wd.. sounds like a bad axle u-joint.

Do you have a lift? If this after you been on the trails. One time I had a noise and it was the lower control arm, but like others said check the front end stuff.

No lift, and I haven't been on the trails in a long time.

Check your control arms. That happened to me and the bushings were wore out causing everything to move and a loud popping sound.
