Front end noise :(

Have a nasty front end noise that started today it feels like the front tires have lumps in them it ,like I'm constantly hitting small bumps in the road and gets worse the higher the speed any ideas ?

Also has a popping sound coming from front end when turning in my driveway or parking spots but only does it sometimes. :/ could be the same problem?

It's driving me nuts any tips are appreciated :/

I had the popping noise there for a little while. Replaced the ball joints and it went away. Is it kinda more like a creaking sound ?

Sounds like balljoints here too. Replace with Steeda X2 units.

It's not a creaking sound more like a knocking popping noise

Would you have to get a bump steer kit if to say that the steeda x2 were to be installed ?

I have the Steeda ball joints on mine and I didn't do the bump steer kit.
No problems
And side note, you get about a half inch of low if you leave the retainers off on the x2's

Yeah, no bumpsteer kit required that is used when lowering the whole care and not really needed unless you go more than 2" lower IMO. You could take this opportunity to throw some lowering springs on i recommend HR Supersports, new steeda x2 ball joints, koni STR.T struts/shocks or Tokico HPs, MM CC plates, new poly isos, leave the retainers off the x2s and be close to 2" lower. I know thats a lot but the new edges look so damn good lowered that its almost a must.
