I have a metal on metal popping sound coming from my front drivers side wheel when I am driving forward and turn right followed by a quick straightening of the steering wheel. It also makes the same noice every once in a while when I am going over bumps.

I get a similar sound when backing out of my driveway from my front passenger side if the wheel is turned when I hit the dip between the road and the driveway.

I read a bunch of posts and thought it was the endlinks so I replaced them with some MOOG's but the noise persists.

So Here is what I am thinking:

1. It is not the endlinks
2. Strut Tower bolts are tight

** Must be the control arms (bad bushings) but I have no clue how to tell if they are bad

Any other thoughts?
If you can't wear it out, burn it off
