POPPING/SNAP SOUND FRONT END

2008 Suzuki SX4

Noises problem
2008 Suzuki SX4 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 31383 miles

I've got 31K miles at early 30K heard a (1) time
popping kind of sound left front suspension area. Happened on a slow speed bump. Didn't hear it again for 1,000 miles or so. Now Hear it 2-3 times a
day. It can happen under accelaertion or cruising.
It has half the feel of a broken motor mount thud.
But is a snap/pop. Like if a coil spring was sitting on the lip of it's seat and then snapped back into place.
It can happen on a slow hard left turn. Or a speedbump. Or cruising at 45MPH straight ahead. There is no rattle ever. Everything in the
steering & suspension feels tight. No shimmy, no vibration, no drift at any speed. It feels like it's at the
drivers side @firewall/floorboard area.
My local Suzuki dealer closed shop. Closest is 180 miles
Kind of getting afraid to drive it.
