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?

Hi, Mine also does that little pop as you say, Let me know what the dealers says if you bring it in.
Lube kit ?

Hi there, As with most of you guys on here as I have the same knocking noise in the front so I took in to the garage (Not the dealer) and they told me that I needed to replace my ball joints as they were almost out of lube. The 2005 and 2006 G6 don't have the lube kits. Does anyone know if I can just buy the lube kit and not replace my ball joints?

Maybe someone could fill a complaint here : http://www.lemonauto.com/complaints/gm/pontiac_g6.htm

This is for USA residents, I can't fill out the form as I'm from Canada.
