Ares3985 Posted October 8, 2019 Share Posted October 8, 2019 I recently replaced my inner and outer tie rods. I also replaced my sway bar endlinks. The tie rod ends came filled with grease and the sway bar endlinks had to be filled via zerk fittings. I filled those up. The inner tie rods had a light amount of green grease. So after doing all this I got an alignment. Everything was good for about 50 miles. Now I have an intermittent popping noise. Sometimes when I turn it does it but sometimes it doesn’t. It also sometimes does it when going over a bump. It sort of feels like it is more towards the center of the car. Which leads me to believe it’s the inner tie rods. I tried to jack it up and then lower it onto the wheels to reproduce the sound but it will only do it when the car is in motion. For the life of me I can’t figure out where it is. Should I removed the boots from the tie rod and put a decent amount of heavy suspension grease In there and pull the boot back over? I really don’t know what else could be making this popping. I just don’t want to put a bunch of grease in there if it isn’t supposed to be. I know asking for tips on fixing a sound is pretty vague but any suggestions or guesses would be helpful.
