2012 GT front end popping noise

Hey everyone, I have a 2012 GT non brembo that keeps making a popping noise while i turn during slow speeds. It will also do it while i hit a pot hole. Ive already replaced the strut mounts while i put in some Steeda struts, I used Oem Ford ones, My setup is Steeda pro action struts and Ford racing P springs, After i did the strut and mount install it was good and quiet, Probably 400 miles later it started making the popping sound. End links loose maybe? Thanks in advance

It's probably your strut mounts. OEM Ford = the suck. Get some GT500's or some camber plates.

I'm having the same problem: Kona Blue 2012 GT Premium Brembo, 22k miles, with the factory Pirelli's. Ford replaced the front lower left control arm, but it's still noisy. On the highway, fine..but on any secondary road the front suspension sounds like a tin can full of rocks. If this were an older car, I'd suspect a loose/broken shock or shackle. Back to the dealer this coming Thursday, so we'll see. No problems with the engine, but that crappy Chinese six-speed was a real bad idea. After warranty, it's on to a Tremec. For what we were forced to pay for these cars, I expected a bit more 'roadability' in this area.

Hi enyaw,

Welcome to the forum! My name is Deysha with Ford Service, and I recommend bringing it back to your dealer and have it checked. Your service manager is in the best position to ensure a proper diagnosis, and will be able to provide available options and/or coverage for any work needed.

You can schedule an appointment online here. Let me know what happens.
