On my 1990 Reatta coupe with 105 K ,during the past year my garage has been trying to solve this nagging snapping sound I am getting when turning the steering wheel at certain times . They have changed the struts and top plates , sway bar bushings ,links and ends , ball joints , motor mounts , body cradle bushings and front brakes . Each of these items probably needed to be replaced , as they were worn or worn out . However each time the results have been the same , when I drive foreword and turn out of my driveway or back out of a parking place and turn the steering wheel to align into my traffic lane I get the same old snapping noise fron the front end . It happens when I turn eather left or right , never when driving straight. Now heres the kicker , it does not always happen when turning a 90 degree corner . The mechanics are baffled anmd would appreciate any advice from this forum I can bring to them . This garage has a great reputation here in Sebastian Florida and have treated me very good on all our cars for 12 years . They do not think there is a safety factor with it , but I can't be sure . If anyone has ever had this problem or any thoughts on what I can ask them to look for it will be greatly appreciated . It has been my dream for 20 years to have this car and I feel with all I have had done to it in addition to the above front end work I now have a car that will last for many more years . Thank you for any advice.
Yes I have spent more on these and numerous other repsirs than I paid origionally for the car but you can't put a price on a mans dream , Jim Sanders
