Q: Would a rack a pinion cause popping when I turn?

asked by on March 18, 2017

I got my tie rods fixed recently at models and they said I need a rack a pinion will this cause my car to pop? Also they said my cradle is cracked. About how much and how would I fix these problems

My car has 194567 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi ShaCora,

A rack and pinion steering system will not make a direct popping sound, but if the bushings are broken or damaged, then the system will move around and pop against the frame.
