Mine did that, it was the lower control arms.
Here's something you could try. I use this to find noises on my truck.
1. Buy a gopro.
2. Set it up under the car pointing at different areas.
3. ride along and make the noise then examine the video.
If it's a popping when you stab at the brakes while rolling, it could be the LCAs. Thuds from going over bumpy terrain at low speeds, maybe sway bar bushings. It's kinda hard to tell which of the ~8 possible parts it is, but the cam helps.
If that's the case, let the dealer repair it. (Think about it) ;-)Not OEM. I'd rather take the hit and go OEM than risk it failing. Just Think about it. There's a reason why it's that cheap.it could be the type of metal used or it could be the type of material they are using for the bushings. Either way for me, the extra money is worth the peace of mind.

Actually, that site is from this thread Canrover, being most that got the parts, from this thread, which is very old, got it from that site. I understand what you're saying, but I think you may be over thinking that a bit (@least for these particular parts)You guys have a point but Arby yours are 1 month old... It would be nice to hear from some people who have had these on for a year or more.
One wheel at a time would be extra challenging. You will have the sway bar under high tension with the vehicle uneven.I guess you have a point. I could buy these, install them and if they fail who cares, I'm out 50 bucks cdn (shipping, taxes and all) for two of them and I can just go get the OEM ones if I really feel it's necessary. Definitely worth considering.
So how hard are these things to change when you're lifting one wheel at a time?
