Hi thanks for using justanswer.com Ill be glad to assist you. If the vehicle is stationary, and you turn the steering wheel does it make the noise?

Expert:  Chris replied 3 months ago.

Hello and welcome to just answer.. When you hear noises like you describe, it is usually a front strut mount, strut spring, or a ball joint. These items can wear out and make creaking/popping noises. A reputable shop can use a mechanics stethoscope and pinpoint the noise. Should be easy to find.

I hope this helps!

I replaced the shocks about a year ago front and back but that wheel area is the only one making all the popping rubbing noises.

Well, if you have the special tools, (Strut spring compressor, etc.) and a place to safely raise the vehicle to remove the struts/ ball joints then you can do it. But if not, leave that job to a proffesional.
