hear a popping noise when wheels turned all the way
every once in a while I hear a slight popping noise when I turn the wheels all the way to the left, not sure about the right but I don't know what that is. I don't think it is cv joints because it is definitely not a loud popping noise and doesn't happen all of the time. I just want to know what it could possibly be. Someone suggested that it may be a U joint, whatever that is. It is on a 1987 BMW 325i. Car is in excellent shape and I would like to have it looked at and not necessarily worked on depending on the cost of whatever it is to fix. On a fixed income so I would really just like to know what the possibilities are as to what it is that it could be.
Is it a single pop? or continuous popping when you turn?
Probably a suspension strut/shock bearing plate. Either that or a ball joint or tie rod end. If you take it to a shop, don't fill them in on your intention to have it looked at but not worked on. As a private shop employee, we don't like diagnosing for free. Time is money.
Got cha Appreciate it man, I am clueless about it so I will just act like I will have them fix it until they tell me what the problem is. Hate to do them like that but need to know what the hell the problem is. Thanks again dude!
