    I have some popping when I reverse and turn my wheel to back out and sometimes it pops when I drive from reversing and turning the wheel the opposite way. Below I have some pictures and video of my front suspension, if anybody sees anything out of whack can you let me know? Also, I've never replaced anything with front suspension so I'll need a remove and replace the Toro on the parts that I do need to replace.

    Does this upper control arm bushing look off and bent?

    All your tie rod ends looks decent.
    The biggest issue I see is that upper control arm bushing. Remove the arm from that bushing and take a look at it but it definitely looks like bushing is fubar'd and the bolt is hitting the back of the mount. Odd though that bushing looks fairly new, the bolt certainly does. I don't recall my upper control arm bolts being torx.... you might look at replacing them with hex head bolts. It may not even be the right size.
    The sway bar link is bent, you could disconnect it from the bar to see if it was causing the sound though I suspect it's the upper control arm bushing/mount.
