popping noise

ok I did a quick search and didnt see anything. My question is when I turn left or right it doesnt matter I get one pop its hard enough i can feel it in the floor board and I cant see anything wrong right off the bat does anyone have any clue what it could be? I'm scared it could ba as bad as the steering box cracking the frame but I'm just not sure. Do any of y'all have any ideas, or has anybody heard of this before and knows what it is?

Check the rear hangers on the front springs. They have one rivet and a little Mickey Mouse welding holding them in place. Over time the welds break, leaving the rivet to hold things together. Mine were both loose. When I had them welded up....no more popping.

What Retro said, and check your upper and lower ball joints too.

I was thinking ball joint too. Jack up the truck so the front tire is about 4" off the ground and slide a 3' piece of pipe under the tire. 6" of pipe go under the tire and you lift up on the other 2 1/2'. You should feel no free movement in the tire/wheel assembly. You should only be lifting on the susspension. If there is movement you need to replace your ball joints.
