Front end noises and question
I've been getting a lot of popping/thumping/clunking noises coming from the front end. Not while steering but when the suspension flexes, as when going over bumps. The dealership said it was the "steering box" and wanted two, TWO grand to replace it.
I left in a hurry and neglected to ask if the mechanic meant the rack and pinion assembly and just called it the steering box. What do you guys think, would a bum rck and pinion cause the popping/clunking racket?
