I hear a popping noise when turning, I can see where it is coming from. it is where the two shafts come together. dealer says it is the rack, but I don't think it is. have not had it fixed yet, but will update when it is done.
Popping noise when turning and going over speed bumps. Dealer recommends new shocks, bushings, steering column. Not yet repaired.
