Hi there. If your car is making popping noises when turning or over inclines, there is probably a problem with the suspension. Common reasons for such noises may be, worn ball joints, worn suspensions bushings, or blown shocks. I would recommend having the vehicle driven and the suspension inspected by a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, so that the correct diagnosis and repairs can be made.
