Loud popping in front when turning

    I have a loud pop noise in the front when I turn only while driving.

    I just bought a 97 ZJ tsi 5.2. In May. It has a 3.5 rubicon express lift and an Ox locker (air) on the front. And was on 17’s.

    Ball joints, tie rod, ends, drag and sb end links are all blown out. I have replaced the ball joints. Replaced tie rods, drag and ends.

    I am looking at my cv axles for the pop noise. Boots aren't torn. But because everything else was blown out, I assume these cv’s are too.

    I've been looking online for replacements, but I'm a little confused.
    I put in my vehicle info in and get a list of different ones. Some specifically have 4wd in the description. Some don't.

    Do I need to buy one that specifically says 4wd? I am 4wd all the time.

    thank you for any advice.

    I’m not 100% but it could be you transfer case too. If everything was blown out and trying to click into 4x you may have some teeth ground up inside. Also, check the hub and bearings.

    I would consider checking the wear on the CV joints.
