Has anyone experienced a popping noise ,coming from the front end, after going over a sharp bump. I thought I had seen a thread on the forum about the sts having ball joint problems, but I could not find it. Another concern I have is that I have the intrax lowering springs and if there is a ball joint problem, the dealer may not warranty them. I only have 6,700 miles on it!

Tie rod or shocks.

I had the same problem....the dealer replaced the control arms under warranty and haven't had any noises going forward.

thanks for the input guys. I will be taking it in to have it looked at,and at least I have some ideas! I also have the 1sg pkg. with the MRC.,those would be some expensive shocks!! And when they replaced your control arms, was it the bushings or broken or cracked control arm?
