Default Car makes popping sound when turning and braking

Hey guys,

I've been running into a little issue lately, and it has been getting worse.

My car makes a popping like sound from the front end when turning the wheel while driving and even while idling. I get the same noise when applying the brakes while driving.

From what I've read on the forum it seems to be the axle or CV joint, but when I had it checked by a mechanic, he told me it looks like the bushing in the front passenger side control arm is loose and the control arm has to be replaced. But he wasn't sure this will fix my problem. Quoted me $240 for the job.

Has anyone had this issue before with the control arm bushing being the problem? Anything else you suggest I check?

Thanks a million guys!

a clicking noise is normally the CV joint.

popping might be something else, can you check to see if the bushing is loose?

Bump.. Cv joint is more than likely the culprit
