Default Cracking or popping noise from the car

I dunno why but I'm hearing A LOT of cracking and popping noises from my 08 xb whenever i'm driving around.

Kinda like the sound when u turn off the car after a drive. it sounds like metal popping noise when the car is cooling down

Does anyone experience this?

I was hearing these sounds like a piece of gravel being kicked up every once in a while and hitting the inside of the wheel well. Figured out that it was the cargo floor not locked down. Check that out.

I hear it on mine every now and then. I have not looked into it a whole lot. I know my tC did it also. I figured I would give it a couple months and see if it still does it.

This is after sway bar was installed.

If you have the cargo cover, some noise is from those little ball weights on the tethered lift cords.

i have had the same sounds coming from the rear. check all the jacking equipment in the cargo area and make sure the spare is secure. i put padding under all the equipment back there and its helped, but its still there. (and thats with/without swaybars)

i suspect it might just be gravel hitting your exhaust

ive got some stickies on and they kick up sand and gravel all the time. once driving through a sandy area i heard a similar "tink" sound and i freaked. my rear passenger pointed out it was gravel hitting the exhaust and that sounded all good to me.
