Front Right Popping Sound

I just developed a pop in the front right of my car. It seems to happen when turning left from a stop on hills, for example if I make a left from a hill onto a flat as the wheel goes over the crest I get a pop (just one). Any ideas?

Did you lower your car? If yes the upper spring perch bearings are knocking.

I did about a year and a half ago. That makes sense though.

Front Right Popping Sound

They are One time use according to Ford, my 14 GT started doing it when I put in Steeda springs. I'm going to install the Steeda mounts to also fix the camber. Ive heard the GT500 mounts are a cheaper solution than the Steeda's and beefier than the stock ones.

They are, but you have to keep in mind that they also require the use of 05-10 struts to work on the 11+ Mustangs.

Okay. I don't have factory shocks,struts, or strut mounts. Eibach prokit. Could be that the strut already went bad.

Another symptom I can add is constant popping when I make a slow sharp left turn.
