Popping sound while braking...

I'm hearing a popping sound when I brake. The wheel could be turned or straight. Just went for a ride with the ford mechanic. He mentioned the TSB( i think its TSB 11-7-8??) for the Lower control arms. It started around 5400 miles. Anyone else here a popping sound when they brake??

A bad bushing in a LCA can cause popping under weight transfer. Had a similar issue on an old car.

Yeah this is def a control arm bushing problem. It should be a warranty job.

Thanks y'all. I couldn't reproduce the response for the ford mechanic, so if it continues I'll bring it in to try again.

I have a popping in what feels like the front when brakes are cold and I'm making a slow stop. I just thought it was the anti-lock brakes. Just under 10,000 miles here.
