As stated, i hit a pot hole. Not just ANY pothole. this thing musta been digging to China. Looked like a normal puddle but oh no. None the less... i have a pop now when i turn left slowly like into a driveway. Its not everytime, but most. So im wondering if i should be looking into a ball joint or the strut brace up top? Maybe even a bent strut itself?? Obviously i will look for other damage. No wobble in the steering wheel, no vibrations, and no kinking or anything like it would maybe be a tie rod. Alignment is still true.
