Finally figured out what the clunk/pop in my front end was.. It was the steering shaft hitting the frame every time I turn a certain way.. The rubber bushings let the rack flex too much for how close the shaft is to the frame IMO.. I know poly ones would mean more steering vibration but who cares I didn't buy mine to drive like a Cadillac. Anyone else have this mysterious clunk?

I remember that post but I think we just verified that most of us see wear on our steering shafts I guess none of us heard the clunk at that time.. I remember AC saying that its from the driver holding onto the wheel too tightly.. What the hell else are you suppose to do?? Let go when you hit big bumps hahaha :eek:

Im The one that called Arctic Cat on it and they said it is because we hang on to the steering wheel pulling on it and the racks rubber mounts let it move.
