I own a 2002 Jeep Wranger 6 Cylinder. Actually, it is my wife's vehicle.
On the occasion that I was in it, I would sometimes hear a small "pop" sound. It *was* of no concern.
The last time I rode in it (two days ago), I heard it twice. Once, same as always. Next time, a little louder than usual. I even asked her if something was in the back compartment (that might have slid and hit the fender well) and made the noise.
I haven't had time to investigate it but this morning while she was on her way to work, she called me and said the popping noise was louder than it had been.
I told her I would check it tonight.
When she got to work, she called me and said that as she travelled further, there was a pretty loud POP. And, she thought the front-left was riding lower after the noise. When she got to work, she got out and checked and it is lower than usual (not significantly but she can see it).
I know this is hard to diagnose without looking at it - UNLESS it is something that happens alot with Jeeps. And that is what I am hoping for. I haven't seen the Jeep since this happened but I'm hoping someone can give me a headstart or point me in the right direction.
Anybody else have this problem and can you tell me what it might be?
Coil broke? Some other suspension part? Other?
