    So I changed ball joints, track bar and steering stabilizer. I did this about a week apart from each other. Death wobble was gone after track bar replacement but when I changed the stabilizer I noticed a loud pop on my left side. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Have someone turn the wheel back and forth while you lay under it and see if you can locate the source of the popping noise.
    It could be a number of things. If it just started after the track bar replacement I would look at the frame side track bar mount, either the track bar itself or the bolts for the track bar mount to the frame.
    Could also be either tie rod end on that side or the steering box.
