so im having an issue trying to diagnose this "popping" sound thats been getting worse in my steering. my first thought was a CV but after listening to it a little more, its more of a "grinding" or "metal groaning" sound. It also only happens in the first few inches of steering wheel travel from vertical (if my steering wheel is perfectly straight, the sound only occurs when I move the wheel a little to the left or right). once you clear those first few inches, the sound stops. I also noticed that i cant turn the tires to full lock when im sitting still. It starts to give alot of resistance and will only go full lock if I am rolling forward. I got under the jeep last night and had the wife move the wheel but I cant quite narrow down the sound. It ALMOST sounds like its coming from the pitman arm......could it be the power steering going bad? i havtn noticed any fluid leaks and all my steering components are tight except I have a VERY SLIGHT vertical movement in the drag link tre at the pitman arm.....any ideas?
