    B8 S5 Front End Popping at full lock

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Happens at slow speeds at full steering lock going forward or backwards. So only when pulling into and out of parking spaces however it is very audible, and it can be slightly felt in the cabin. I have put the car on a lift and checked out everything on the front end. Nothing was loose except the subframe brace, which I tightened. The problem seemed to lessen for the drive home but come back soon after. Could it a loose subframe brace cause this? Or is it something wrong with the toe angle or camber of the front end? On that note tire wear is even.. Any help would be great!
