I can't hear any pops/cracks in mine over all the squeeks and rattles.

Smart man. I also added the cheap ECS strut bar in addition to my reinforcement plates. It may be only minimal gains at best, but it's additional peace of mind. Mushrooming can happen too easily.

Mine comes on every 500~700 miles like a monthly menstrual cycle. Gulps oil like a 2 stroke. Put a little in and it's happy for another month.
I see rings in my future.
