      Sometimes when I externally rotate my hip I get a decently
      audible pop. Happens occasionally to both sides. Also, when in a
      standing
      position, if I raise my knee as high as I can, my hip (maybe back? Hard
      to
      tell?) always pops on the way down. This happens probably 90% of the
      time I do
      this motion. I’m performing the motion in neutral braced standing
      position like described in Supple Leopard, so i don’t think its a
      positioning thing? but could be wrong? What is the cause and what is the
      fix? i can lift my knees past 90, I don’t have the full 130 degrees
      yet, i would put myself at about 110-120degrees.

      I have the same kind of issue, when I’m laying on my back with my legs straight and raise my legs above 45degree then lower them my right hip clicks – no pain, just a loud clicking sound from what I believe is the tendon flicking over the hip (at first I thought it was my hip popping in and out because my leg would ‘shake’ when it flicked as if it was slipping in and out). I found that I’m extremely tight anteriorly in my hips and once I started to work on that (smashing of the TFL/Psoas/IT/Illiacus, Banded Hip Capsule work, Super Couch) then the click would either be non existent or very slight – I personally think the smashing of the TFL/Psoas and Capsule work has been the most benefit tho.  

      I’m not sure if this is the same issue as yours or if what helped me may help you as well as mine does not ‘Click’ when I’m standing and try to perform the same action

      My hip pops from the front, when going into extension. From all that I could find it is probably snapping hip syndrome where the psoas tendons slides severe near the capule or pelvis. I also suffer from hip impingement on my right leg. I do the hamstring floss everyday, and couch stretch it reduces how hard the pop sounds, but it’s still there. I hip click every time i squat. It’s creepy sounding.
