Re: New Pop/cracking sound while sitting in the car in the morning
Do you really need the e parking brake in your garage? Just leave your car in 1 st gear. I have had problems with the parking brake in the past. Mine uses brake shoes, which sometimes stick to the drum when left wet, like after a car wash, or worse, on the track after a heated use of disc brakes. The drum, which is the inner part of the rear rotors will get heat soaked causing the parking brake shoes to wield to the hot drum. When started in either reverse or 1 st gear, there are small retainer spings holding the brake shoes in place that actually can be pulled out of their sockets trying to unfreeze the shoes from the drum. This maybe unrelated to the pop you hear, as it can be easy to test. Just do not use the e brake for a week and see if your pop goes away.
The other possibility is your suspension's the outer ball joint seal, or thrust puck seal on your LCA's may have been contaminated with road grit causing wear. If you pinpoint that, a temporary fix is silicon spray through a small tube into the suspected area. Sooner or later, you will need a permeant fix.
