Popping when I drive?

Hey, guys!
I have a problem with my car making popping sounds as I drive. It's not when I turn, so I don't think it's the ball joints? And the popping goes as fast as I drive.
If it helps any, I've had a little alignment problem for a while, ended up changing the driver side strut, probably made it worse.

The sound sounds like it's coming from the center of the axle, though?
Any ideas?

Check your driveshaft bolts. Also transmission mount, control arms and sway bar.

Guys, I figured it out. See, my friend kinda loosened both my passenger wheel and driver wheel lugs... we didn't tighten the passenger ones back. So I drove all the way to Knoxville and back with 3 lugs. Dangerous.
