Did you fill the ball joints with grease? I forgot to grease mine and had a loud popping noise when I pushed on the fender to compress the suspension and also when I turned hard. Sounds like you have the same issue.

Yeah I dis all of that everything is installed properly its the craziest thing when I'm outside the car I can pull and tug and push on different things and the car won't make a sound but the minute I apply brakes or gas its popping again do u know if maybe the k member bolts being loose would cause this problem

Disconnect the outter tie rod and turn the front wheels left and right to full articulation to check for the sound. If it still does it then you can rule out most of the steering and look more into the suspension.

Could it be the sway bar links?
