Front suspension is making a popping noise when hitting a bump.

Anyone know what this could be? My first thought would be to replace the struts... but i dont know for sure.

I have a 99 prelude, its lowered and has 17s on it. When i hit a bump a little to hard or go over RR tracks there is a loud pop from both wheels. Other than that noise i have no other reason to believe the struts could be bad. Theres no leaking and the car handles as it should. Im wondering if theres something wrong or if the car is just so low that the struts are being compressed all the way.

Any help is much appreciated.

also i should point out that this happens when im going any speed. Plenty of the bumps arent that big.. ive had several lowered cars and never seen this.


Thanks

are they stock struts? i think you should jack your car up shake it down with the wheel on hands at 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock and then at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock check for play... if you dont feel any pull the wheels and check for worn parts
