For the last week my 06 Escalade occasionally "bangs" or pops from the right rear of the vehicle upon startup. I am guessing it is a suspension component that pops as the compressor is jacking up the back end. I have laid under the car many times, and since it does not do it every time, I can't tell where it is coming from.
I suspect a bad bushing, but I cannot see anything that looks warn or bad....nothing shiny from being hit.
do you get a service ride control message cause it may be a bad shock i know mine did a noise like a gun going off when my driver's side shock blew out it is possible the shock has a bad spot the only lets out the sir once the compressor gets it pumped up to a certain point.
