could you define the "whole thing"?

are you talking about the brake calibur?

it sounds like the upper control arm is loose where it mounts to the frame, its usually is moved around during an alignment, then re-tightend.

Control arms,thats what I was trying to say,when you turn the wheel hard either way or put on brakes hard the control arms move enough to make a popping noise,The two bolts are what I was wondering about,do they just tighten?Or is there some kind of bushing supposed to be there?

I believe it just needs to be re-tightened...I don't believe there is a bushing there.
