I believe I fixed the suspension noise
 
I just wanted to say thanks to everybody that gave me advice on what might fix the popping noise. I got home from work early and re-loosened all the CA bolts and trackbars(finally got the front loose), gave it a GOOD shake and then re-torqued everything to spec and the popping seems to have gone away.

Now the bad part is I have no idea what it was, but THINK it was the lower control arm bushing on the drivers side as that's where the sound seemed to be coming from.

Thanks again for all the help. I feel alive again :thumb:

Nice work dude. Amazing how simple it can be sometimes. Thinking its about time for a new torque wrench myself. The 5 year old harbor freight one is showing its age.

Not sure how I missed this: Weird popping noise in front suspension

Glad you got it fixed. :)

Amazing AND frustrating, but all part of the game.

I just bought a new torque wrench as well. Nothing like a good straining session getting those CA bolts to 125 lbs. :)

Me too man. It had me worried that I was going to have to spend some of my tire money to get something fixed and put me behind my goal date for getting tires and nobody wants that :nonono:

Ended up being a simple fix luckily

Glad to hear you got it handled! Hoping to track down my driver's side suspension rattle sometime this weekend. :thumb:
