Popping

Whenever I pull out of a parking place, or just turn my wheel really hard, it makes this loud popping noise. I have no idea what it is. Can anybody help?

Tie rod end worn down maybe, baljoint if it happens while driving. Does it happen on both sides?

Try lubing all your suspension points and tie rod ends. It may be the ball joints. One pop? or a grinding popping noise?

Just the right side pops, and I've only noticed it while backing out of a parking place. It's just a quick, yet loud popping noise.

It could be your front sway bar end links, not an expensive fix.

my guess is ball joint. So one pop and im assuming it happens with the wheel turned somewaht and moving right? Lift your car and see if you have and up and down movement in the wheel.

I'd take a good look at your tierod ends.... Especially the inner tierod ends. if there is any axial play in it(in and out movement), They will make a popping noise. Sitting still in the car, Can you make it pop by moving the steering wheel swiftly back and forth???
