well i changed out the endlink thinking that was the problem after reading the all suspension noise thread and the noise is still there. it happens when i come to a stop, when i hit small bumps and when i turn the wheel to either side. is there anything else it could be?

thanks

Check to see if your tie rod outer has a blown bushing or if it's loose. It could also be your ball join for your spindle.

Does your car have stock suspension?

I had LOUD clicking sounds coming when I applied breaks. Supposedly my car needed a SHIMS kit and something needed to be lubricated. After that the noise went away for sometime. After 6 months its somewhat back.

Definitely check and see if your tie rod outer is loose, that would be the 1st thing that i would check.

Could also be your wheel bearing, you'd be surprised the kind of noises they'll make when they're on their way out.

Jack your car up to get the offending wheel off the ground, and try to wobble your wheel, if it moves AT ALL in any non-rotational motion, its most likely your wheel bearing.

My car has the same problem. I payed the Lexus dealership over $1,400 to fix it and the sound is still there! I hate dealerships!

I had a similar problem and it turned out my front sway bar was missing a bolt and a couple others were loose.

I just noticed two days ago that I have the same problem.
It comes from the passenger side and
only when a passenger is present.
But like stated before, its a pop only when the wheel
goes over a bump.

My front passenger side was making some popping noise everytime I hit a bump or bad rough roads. I knew it was the shocks but havent had time to change it out. Finally last week I went ahead and purchased some new front shocks(KYB) and installed it. Went over the same bump that I hit and made the noise every time I leave the house. Now tHe noise is gone, even on rough roads.
One of my end links for the sway bar is bad(leaking fluid) when I change the shocks but left it as it is but it never gave me any noise.
