people with popping or clicking noise in front suspension...i have answer

Ok so I bought my cube with 80 miles on it brand new and it had this popping noise from front suspension and I took it to dealer they replaced the strut bearings because they have this problem often and that is usually the solution, it didn't work so they called nissan and nissan said to remove the strut relube everything and see what happens and that didn't work so they called nissan again and nissan said they have had this problem on some cubes and they have replaced the whole strut assembly to fix it so now I'm waiting for the dealer to get the struts in so it can be fixed.....anyone with this popping noise should take it in its a nisan problem its not caused from lowering springs or anything some cubes just have bad struts hope this helps

I gotta cube I gotta cube I gotta cube hey hey hey hey!

Re: people with popping or clicking noise in front suspension...i have answer

At the dealer as I speak, the new struts are installed and the noise is still there..
The dealer called nissan and nissan has came to the conclusion that during the making of my cube they might have missed a weld on the strut mounting location, causing the noise
Now they are setting up an appt. For me to come back to get the fenderwell re welded
How can this even happen?

Your cube was probably built on a Friday...

Re: people with popping or clicking noise in front suspension...i have answer

I lowered my Honda Fit and I also now have a popping sound on my left rear. It was perfect before I lowered it.

It is interesting to hear the same symptom but in your case a possible weld issue.

I wish you a speedy recovery

Re: people with popping or clicking noise in front suspension...i have answer

Just got my cube back and so far no noise, they swapped the entire suspension system out with bransd new and still made noise, so they took it to their body shop and found a metal plate under the wiper cowl that was not bolted in properly they re torqued it to specs and now it makes no noise lol, so I guess that was the problem the whole time

Re: people with popping or clicking noise in front suspension...i have answer

Folks, what's the noise like? My 2009 Cube has developed a bit of play in the steering that I notice during sharp turns,esp at low speed (like a parking lot). It feels like something is loose...there's a small but noticeable clunk that I feel through the steering wheel, and a very small noise...kinda like going over small expansion joint. Is that anything like what you experienced?
