popping noise? sway bar? links?
 
I have a popping noise when i turn the wheel either way. I have about a 3 inch bump to go over when turning into my driveway does it 50% of the time. Doesnt do it everytime, but is getting more frequent and is annoying me. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

sway bushings then check sway links.

Today I took off the front sway bar and links. Took it out for a drive twisting up the suspension and it still pops! Don't know what else it could be. I can't find anything with it. Any help where to look would be greatly appreciated!

IIRC Try tightening the upper control arm mounts/bolts (I think this is what the bolts connect to, there is one on either side when standing in front of the tire and looking down into your engine) through the engine bay...lemme see if I can find my thread and/or pic...I had a similar issue after I loosened the bolt trying to find a mounting location for my catch can

here you go...not really a "piopping" sound but something to check...

Thanks, next time I have a chance I will check the upper control arm bolt

Tightened every bolt I could see. Still having the same popping noise. Seems like its becoming more frequent. Wonder if it can be the front diff mounts/ bushings? I do get little noise when going from Reverse to Drive. I know they need replaced.
I can't get it to make the noise when parked, only when the jeep is moving. Don't know where else to look

have you checked your tie rod ends or the steering rack mounts?

I have checked everything. I can't get it to pop when jeep is stationary, only when moving. Sounds like metal to metal contact.

I have the exact same issue. Sounds like something binds up by the front sway links and then pops free. Happens when i turn the wheel or sometimes over bumps. Can't for the life of me figure out what it is. everything looks tight up front and drives tight, but the pop is very loud. i have bilstein shocks, eibach springs, bwoody links, srt8 sway on '05 wk.
