Took me forever to figure my popping out. All in the front and only when it's twisted up. Had it since I bought it (Over 2 years) Stopped the other day and got out to admire the truck. Lol Turns out my body bushings are bad. Headlights were touching the bumper on one side and about a 4 inch gap or so on the other. While I haven't replaced them or even really looked into it further, the symptoms match and I am curently convinced that is the problem with mine. I have looked at the front end 50 times and torqued EVERYTHING about that many too. Post up if ya'll find anything else though. I may still be wrong.
