hello I have a 2004 Dodge SX 2.0 AKA neon and when I turn sharply left 30% of the time I will hear a loud pop from the driver side
I lifted the car up and put it in drive and turned the wheel left and right and there is no noise leading me to believe the CV shafts are good
The sway bar bushings look good
I am hoping someone can give me some in-site because its a 120km round trip to my parents shop and I would like to get the correct part the first time
I am hoping lower ball joint but the only tool I have is a 4 foot pry bar and the crappy jack that comes with the car and a basic socket set...
I have an extensive amount of tools at my parents shop though
What would the best way to check the ball joint for play be? I've always used a hydraulic jack and when down fast why having a second person check for movement but that is not possible atm.
Thanks in advance.
