Poping while turnin

Have a 2010 sport and recently every time I turn while moving I'm feeling a popping in the steering wheel and in the pedals any ideas about what is causing it

It's your intermediate steering shaft. Many others experience this and if it bothers you, you can have it replaced. You won't feel the pop for a few months but then it will return.

^^this. Had mine replaced with only 5k on the clock. Been fine the last 13k, but I fully expect it to come back.

What precludes it from being fully "fixed"?

Because they "fix" it with the exact same crappy shaft. They fail all the time. Most folks who are out of warranty (and even some still covered) cut a small slit in the boot and put in 5th wheel grease. After the grease is added, they work the steering wheel back and forth. This seems to fix the issue for a while, but is also not a permanent solution as far as I know. I have also read a report of someone putting too much grease in the boot which then somehow caused the boot to explode when underhood temps rose.

Are you using 4WD on the pavement by any chance?

I greased mine last fall and the "popping" as yet returned.

He said he "feels it in the pedals". I'm thinking it's not the steering.

The popping from the shaft can be felt through the pedal from time to time. I have no idea why but alas..

What do you think about it being related more to jeeps that have been lifted than those that have not? I remember you are running the HD coils correct however it might be more prevalent in those jeeps at or above 2.5" of height.

That could be. I didn't realize that it was that prevalent.

Yup, was the same on mine before I had it replaced.

Actually, if you lightly hit the steering wheel, you can feel it in the pedals. Pretty wild.

Mine was stock at the time. I bought a grease gun and needle fitting and really stuffed the boot. Was not too bad. Just a minor feeling in the wheel/peddle. I read a entire thread about guy crying about his steering box. How crappy the JK's steering box is, he's had it replaced like 3 or 4 times.. blames the box and not the shaft for the noises/feelings that are common.

Hate to he his dealer
