Try having someone twist the steering wheel while standing next to the truck. If the pop is that bad, you sould see some movement somewhere.

If it is only when the truck is rolling, I would look at the axle shaft u-joints.

Karl and his 2003 6.0

Barefoot Accelerator Pedal
TRICO Force wiper blades
Yellow Military Aircraft Valve Stem Caps
Offensive "Stick Family" Decal
Big Ol'Honkin 1 1/4" Shank Receiver Hitch


WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!
