THIS GUYS PROBLEM IS THE SAME IM HAVING BUT MINE ONLY STARTED AFTER I CHANGED WATER PUMP IS IT POSSIBLE I WHEN CONNECTING TRANS COOLER LINES DID NOT ALLOW ENOUGH SLACK so I am starting to get a "popping noise in the front end. It seems to be comeing from the control arms but I have checked and all bolts are tight. It happens when I am in 4x4 or any time the traction direction is reversed.
I'll give you an example............. I can get in the truck, but it in reverse and roll a few feet then hit the brakes.....it goes "pop" . then I put it back in drive, roll forward a few feet, hit the brakes and "pop" .
Now if I let of the brakes and roll forward again and hit the brakes, it doesn't do it. It seems like it is taking the slack out of something and will only do it when the direction of the pull on the axle is changed and it takes the slack out.
it pops only when i change from reverse to forward or forward to reverse never after bumps or turning ? its my girlfriends trk and she told me after asking if noise had started after pump install
