It is a one time popping sound only at hard turns.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Hi. The popping noise you describe is usually caused by the sway bar link. If you want to verify that, you can remove the link and drive it and see if the noise goes away.

Is there a schematic somewhere to point out the location of the swaybar?

Also make sure you check the ball joints as well. But the generally clunk when going over bumps. Also check all of the bushings for the front suspension bars. They commonly wear out.

It did not stop the clunks. still happening. Any other idea?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

What did you replace?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I replaced the sway bar link arms on both sides as well as the rubber bushing and clamps holding the sway to the frame. Even when I had the entire sway bar taken out, I did a test drive and the clunks where there.

Any ideas?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

It must be either the ball joints or the bushings in some of the arms. I have seen shocks clunk. Maybe the shocks need to be tightened.
