Hello everyone, I have a question about my 98' Camry 2.2L. It makes a soft popping noise when I turn and a few times when I drive over bumps, not always though. I know for a fact the soft popping noise when I turn has to do with the rack and pinion but this other noise I can't seem to see what it could possibly be. The lower controls arms are a month old as well as the link bars. It only makes the noise when I drive under 50 mph, but yet it makes no noise at all when I drive up to 75mph in the highway. I have to go to San Antonio this weekend and I live 4 hours away. Does anyone know what it might be and do y'all think I can make it driving in the highway for 4 hours in the condition it is at right now?

Is your p/s fluid clean, not dark or dirty? Are there any fluid leakages?

front strut mounts are probably making the noise. You can try tighten the nut on the mount (where the strut shaft is), but more then likely the mount is done for.

if tightening the big bolts to 55ftlbs don't work, you could jack up the front end and pry around or spin the tires or hit some components with a rubber mallet to see what moves in ways it's not supposed to.

What he said. Pretty much not much should move other then the strut and tire turning with steering wheel left to right when car off the ground. Grabing the tire at 9 and 3, 12 and 6 movING pusing aND pulling tire shold not produce aNY noise. You have the strut, sway bar bushings, links, hub,tie rod, ball joint, control arm, and cv axel.
