Slight "pop" in front end on take-off

I've only had my G6 GT (2007) for a few days and am loving it. However, I have noticed a slight "pop" (or thump) when accelerating from a stop or turning at low speeds (usually accelerating then too). It is hard to tell where it is coming from, but feels like from right behind the steering column. I was wondering if it could be a suspension issue (car has 29k miles on it). My wife's Buick Rendezvous was doing something similar at 35k miles and had to have both front outer tie-ends replaced. Is it normal for the G6 to have a little pop (and it is VERY minor, btw) or something I should have the dealership look at?

Well I may have some info for those of you with the poping, grinding whatever noise that you hear when taking off from a stop or at slow speed turns. We have an 06' GTP and had it in our local dealer 5 times and ended up having the complete rack and pinion replaced as well as the intermediate shaft. It was a painful process and I am glad it is over but it does seem to have fixed the issue. Good luck to you in resolving this issue because our local dealer did not seem to want to take the time needed to find this.
