Well, there's usually SOME disparity in favor of the quads... normally you want something like hammies to be ~3/4 as strong (3 muscles vs. 4 muscles).

No translation of the femur-tibia articulation should help eliminate the popping, and translation is usually due to an imbalancing pulling the femur either forward or backwards (usually forwards if the quads are dominant). This also puts stress on the ACL.
