So I put some new suspensions on my jeep about a year ago. Nothing fancy, just coil springs, shocks and stabilizer bars, leaving the factory control arms etc in place.
It was a DIY job in my parking spot, so inevitably I messed something up and now there's an annoying creaking/popping sound whenever I turn the steering wheel at low speeds (i.e. when trying to park). It sounds like a bad bushing popping and clicking. Not metallic, just a dull/muted pop.
After spending many hours under the jeep I have given up on finding the cause myself. I'm planning on taking it to an alignment shop, but just wondering what they can do for a car with front and rear solid axles? Seems to me besides toe in/toe out there's nothing to be adjusted, since the control arms and stabilizer bars are all rigid?
Do you think they'd be able to find the source of the noise from doing an alignment? or any other suggestions on where the noise could be coming from? Apologies for the vague question, any insights would be appreciated!
