Honestly I didn’t really hear it but I did have some stuff in the cargo area so I will let you know on the next drive. Remind me when you can lol.I am hoping your bushing replacement fixes it. I drove around for a day with my cowl panel removed to help diagnose my pop/creak noise. Noise still there with cowl plate removed. So its not that So I might spray down my sway bar bushings with silicone spray lube to see if that changes anything. I was also suspicious of possibly the steering ram. If it is the bushings then they will start making noise again sooner or later. Doorman makes aftermarket replacements but doorman parts are typically low quality.
