Lower Control Arm
I got a 2013 Terrain SLE 46,000 miles. Last weekend i took it in to Pepboys to have them replace my right front lower control arm (it was going out), making noises when going over speed bumps and turning. After the install the noise went away, but a new one appeared. Now every time i'm taking off from a stop or braking to a stop my front suspension is making a popping noise (like pop-pop).
Two things i recall is watching them remove the wheel hub just to replace the control arm which i know is not necessary at all. Also second thing is while the car was lifted in the air, they tightened and torqued all the bushings/bolts without the suspension being loaded and once done they lowered the car and pulled it out?
Could the popping noise be related to them not torquing everything under load? or possibly them screwing something around the wheel hub? I've driven about 200 miles since they replaced it.
thanks for any input guys.
