Front End Popping Noise

When I start moving from a complete stop I get 2 or 3 sharp "pops" from the front end. It seems like it is suspension/steering related. Tie rod ends? There is no side to side play that I can tell, but there is some up and down play. Steering seems tight, no wobble or unusual tire wear. So far. Has anyone experienced something like this before?

2010 E350, V10, Quigley. 78k miles.

Thanks,
Jeff

That's what my ball joints sound like when they go....(I eat through them more often than most.....)

Re: Front End Popping Noise

i get a pop on my quigley as well (03 with 160k). after a stop, right when you first get on the gas, it pops. not every time, but often. seems to pop more often after a harder/quicker stop...if that makes sense.

i have newer balljoints, steering link, and tie rods. noise didnt change when those were replaced...happened prior and still happens, no better, no worse. im starting to think its bad bushings in the quigley arms. i really need to get a camera on the suspension and figure out the noise though.

I use to get this until I added the special limited slip additive from Ford to the front differential. It was not a loud pop but more of a jerking low pop once I came to a full stop and started moving again.

shenrie - that sounds exactly like what I am getting with mine. I was wondering about the torque arm bushings too, but wasn't sure how to check them.
