My car has 194567 miles.

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.

We suggest an inspection to perform a full diagnostic to your vehicle. We can create a quote for you but remember that this is based upon the information you are providing and our mechanic may arrive on site and determine other issues or same.

Also we recommend you to provide the report form your previous service providers to the mechanic.

Best Regards,
