2008 Astra XR
Default Popping and crunching sound

Iíve looked through the forums pretty well to try and find my answer but no luck. Iíve gotten close and think maybe itís the sway bars, any time I turn the wheel for tight turns or go over a bump thereís always a crunch and pop sound. At times I can even feel it through the steering wheel, especially on cold starts. As an extra Iíve recently had the transmission replaced, perhaps maybe something wasnít put back correctly?
Thanks for any input!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

For safety purposes, get that looked at by a mechanic RIGHT NOW.

May be a cheap fix but I would not diagnosis via internet.

To me that sounds like either you front sway bar bushings or the top hats on your struts are worn out.
