Did you grease the poly bushings prior to install? If not they do have attendance to make noise under all driving conditions.
Thanks for chiming in, I did grease them and they were fine when first installed until recently they start doing that cracking noise like I mentioned a broken FWD axle noise and sticking out from the black part. too bad Iím past the year but I will post a pic of how they look now may be someone will tell me what should be done, as of now I ordered some powerflex and I will press them in the old OEM housing I got..
