Popping/clinking feel on steering wheel

Im getting a slight popping or clicking feel on my steering wheel when I go over any type of bump or even make a turn. It's more of a feel than something I can hear. I tend to Drive with my left hand so I mainly feel it on the left side more than the right. I took it to dealer and of course they say they feel/hear nothing

Mine did that and the driveshaft was replaced and it fixed the problem.

So I've figures out a little more on the feeling. It feels like it's from driver side and I notice it mainly when in a slight right turn or over minor bumps

Theres a whole write-up on how to fix this and its not the replacing the driveshaft. Search Popping in steering wheel or something and you should be able to find it.

That's not to say replacing the drive shaft under warranty wouldn't fix it.

Warranty: replace shaft.
No warranty: DIY.
