Car looks good! Can't even tell the bumper was replaced.

Thanks! She's stuck inside for tomorrow unfortunately. The popping sound in the front is getting worse, and I can't have it in the shop till Saturday morning.

March 2nd, 2014:

Rack and pinion being replaced....again.
Thankfully it's all still under warranty.
Popping/clunking sound while turning and in motion is still there. Could be either the right front tie rod end, the sway bar link, the struts/mounts, or the rack and pinion that is leaking. What a mystery...

On the bright side, I've got most of the supplies for the wood grain paint project next weekend! Just a few more things to get. Also ordered a couple emblems. It's gonna be a fun job!

Good luck. Make sure you spend a lot of time on the prep work. It's harder than it looks. Just take your time with it. Should come out good. You doing the peices on the door too ?

Now when you say turning, you don't mean the Intermediate Steering Shaft, ISS, do you?

Impala2007: Yes, I am going to give those pieces a go! I have someone who has experience with automotive painting helping me as well, so I'm hoping that gives me an advantage with this.

Don: I don't believe that's it, I haven't heard that term thrown around at all when speaking with the mechanics. I've heard struts and bushings, the rack (which is leaking), sway bar links, and my right front tie rod end which has a little play to it. The pop feels like it's coming from the suspension or at least something further away from me in the front end. I can usually slightly feel the pop in my foot. Why do you ask about the ISS?

The ISS tends to be a common issue with Impalas. When turning the wheel, it makes a loud thunking and as it wears the steering becomes loose and easily manipulated by bumps. Not saying that is the cause, as it sounds like there's more at play, but something to consider if those symptoms fit.

I see what you're saying. The noise happens almost every time i turn the wheel while in motion, but it also tends to happen when going over bumps. So it's a tough call.

Then it could be all those together. I had to get a plastic bearing that went on the steering shaft just under the dash. That and I had the shaft....replaced I think. It's been a while. She steered like a new car after I had that done!

Yeah i gotcha! Well when they replace the rack and pinion I'll ask if they can take a look at the ISS to see if there's anything wrong.
