Default Popping Noise when Braking and Turning?

Fellas,

I know this has been posted a few times; however I believe after reading all other related posts mine is a different issue which is why I decided to create a new one.

As you can see I have a 2010 Ranger (still under warranty). I am getting a popping noise coming from under the truck/front floor board whenever I turn the wheel sharply (both left and right) and push down on the brakes while still moving.

The issue only happens when I have my foot down on the brakes which leads me to believe it is break related.

I read other posts and took it to the dealership and told them to replace the "tie rods" as it helped someone else with this similar issue; however that did not solve the problem.

Any ideas? All help would be greatly appreciated so I can get this fixed while still under warranty. Thanks, Ryan

If it is still under warranty then take the service manager for a ride and tell him you want that noise located and fixed.

I did that already at 2 different shops. I actually rode with the mechanic and they clearly heard the sound and claimed to have taken everything off and checked every part and still could not fix it..... Thanks though

i believe he is asking if it is torsion bar or coil spring suspension, but i think all rangers eventually made the switch to torsion bar. I personally think it is a problem there. The adjuster keys are located directly underneath the driver side and passenger side floorboard. check those points to rule out any loose parts. Jack the truck up and check as well.

That was the question if it is torsion bar set up popping sounds and creaking sounds are normal it is the the bar twisting i would check them for cracks and or signs of stress.

Fellas, I am not a mechanic; however I do believe that my truck does NOT have torsion bars. Am I wrong? I thought only the Edge's and 4x4 trucks have them? Thanks for the suggestions though.

I'm pretty sure you have coil spring suspension.....How many miles do you have...... My sister has a mountaineer 2wd that was doing the same thing a very light popping during braking and turning.... ended up being wheel bearings....

Tom, thanks. I only have 20k miles on it which is the weird thing... Only reason I would shy away from the wheel bearings is b/c it only happens when I have the breaks on. I can turn without braking (at low speeds) and it wont make a sound! Weird I know...

Does it making the poping sound once then stop or is a continuous poping??
