13 ZL1 - Intermittent pop while turning.

Guys -

13 ZL1 with stock suspension, wheels, and tires. I have noticed recently that while making a sharp turn, I will hear a pop come from the front. I also noticed it while backing out with the wheel turned. Thought I hit something but nothing was around me. Both the passenger and myself will hear and feel it when it happens. The noise is intermittent so I'm not able to duplicate. I took it to the dealer for it previously and they could not duplicate but said they didn't find any issues after inspection.

Any ideas what i should be looking for or where I can go to get a good is inspection?

I had a similar issue with my headers hitting the passenger side frame rail when the engine torqued and turning left. I'd check for clearance there if that sounds similar.

Mine does it when backing out of driveway and only turning wheel to the right. But once in a while only.

I always thought it was stiction in the suspension or just a sticky sway bar mount.

Had all sorts of these noises in the back of my Z4M coupe. Always the sway bar. Had them n my Subaru STi. Always diff bind. In the ZL1, I just pretend it's a Miata caught under the real wheel.

Same here when it is cooler outside. Back out of driveway, turn and pop. Warmer it does not. Most of the cars have this for some reason.

I feel better I'm not alone. Started noticing it as it got colder out here. It's only happened 3 times and only happens when turned to the right so far that I have noticed.

This sounds very close to what was happening in 2012 CTS v series. Excerpt from a post on that site:

Wheel Clicking

We acknowledge and regret that some CTS-V customers experience this "clicking sound" from their wheels in low speed, tight turn parking lot maneuvers. We've studied this phenomenon fairly extensively; it is the result of interface of the aluminum wheel to aluminum rotor hat configuration. We have released a technical service bulletin that prescribes a very high degree of cleanliness in the wheel-to-rotor mounting, and our experience to date is that the TSB, if followed exactly, is very effective in eliminating the noise.

Some customers had been concerned about this being a noise from brake system interference to the wheel under high steer angles. It is not. The noise emanates from the mounting surface of the wheel on the hat of the rotor at high steer angles. If you have this noise, the cleaning process and re-torquing is fully covered by your warranty at our dealership. If you choose to dismount wheels on your own, please follow the service bulletin pasted below and carefully follow the instructions on cleaning and torquing wheels.

GM has tested the integrity of wheel attachment on the CTS-V. The "clicking noise" is not indicative of any concerns or compromised performance in wheel attachment integrity, or in the wheel itself.

Who the hell can hear this clicking noise over the loud exhaust these cars have?
