I've got a weird problem, maybe someone has some ideas?
I have a 2000 S-10 4WD Blazer, that has had a strange popping noise for a
good while. No one that I have taken it to has been able to hear what I am
I have replaced all 4 ball joints, idler arm, shocks and a hub assembly so
far (they were worn out @ 70,000 miles), and the noise has gotten worse.
Luckily, it was up on a lift last week, and when my friend set it down &
backed it out, it popped pretty loud! He finally admitted that I wasn't
going crazy, cuz he heard it too. After lifting it back up, and scrounging
around everything, he reproduced the noise that we heard, by moving the rear
torsion bar mount. Seems like the driver side bar is popping when the mount
piece (about under the passenger doors) flexes after rolling a couple of
feet? He looked at the mounts/bushings, and said that they didn't look bad,
but that didn't mean anything either . Has anyone ever had this problem, or
does replacing the mounts/bushings fix this, or could this be something
else? Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks in advance,
