#1 of 5 2007 XL-7 Steering noise
Apr 12, 2008 (7:43 am)
On my xl-7 upon turning left it makes a poppping noise, its real bad at complete stops,its almost like a cv axle noise. Ive taken it to the dealer at least 8 times and they replaced struts , but it still makes this noise.I also called the main Suzuki customer office and complained.They told me its just one of the characteristics of the new Xl7 . Any ideas???

My 2007 Suzuki XL7 is as bad as yours. It bothers me so much that I have the radio on loud enough not to hear it.

I have a 2004 Suzuki XL. When we start the truck, it revs up really high and loud. What could this be?

I am currently a student at NDSCS in the Auto mechanic program i brought my Suzuki XL-7 which is a 2007 with a noise in the front left of the car. So i brought it in to the shop so i can take a look at it with my teacher which is good at steering and suspension and he also has his ASE for this. Back to my point we found nothing wrong with the front end but it is still making the noise. It gets really bad when its really cold out. I think its a CV joint because they are cheaply made. anyone have any other IDEAS???

Noise will be from the sway bar being out of position. The collars that secure the stabilizer bar centered will break free, allowing the sway bar to shift to either side, allowing the control arms to contact the stabilizer bar at full turn. Very tough to see if your not directly underneath.
