POPPING IN FRONT LEFT WHEN TURNING

I Have a lifted 2013. 6 Inch lift with 37s and 22s. When turning left i am getting a popping noise in the front left and can feel it throught the floorboard, I can also feel it when going over bumps in the fron left. It hardly ever does it when its warm outside but when its cold it does it non stop and when hitting any bump in the road. I have looked at everything underneath and i cant find anything. Any ideas? Thanks for any input

It's more that likely the track bar bolt or the track bar drop bracket. I would go back and retorque all that hardware to spec. The track bar bolt on the frame side needs to be torqued to 406 ft/lbs.

I have the exact same issue and have ever since I installed my lift. I could not find a shop that could measure 406 ft lbs so I went to a Jeep shop where they had a five foot cheater bar and they went over all of the nuts and bolts that I messed with during the install. The pop got better for a few thousand miles but is back in force now. I feel your pain man!

Mine also does it at random times but mainly when coming to a stop or going over a speed bump slow, etc.

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

If you rule out the track bar, I had a ball joint in a 1/2 ton truck that would do that... Sure enough, with the tire off the ground you could move the tire in and out the ball joint was so toast...

Damn glad I found this thread. My truck with 6" lift is doing the exact same thing. Was thinking ball joint but will now check the track bar bolts. Thanks!

Best thing to do is to put a bottlejack or floor jack under the end of a cheater pipe or breaker bar. Use this method to turn the bolt once you can no longer do it yourself.
