Need help!

I've been chasing these popping noises for about a month or two now. I cannot seem to find out where it's coming from sometimes it sounds like its my suspension, then I hear the knock when I put it in gear and drive, at times it sounds like its coming from my rear. I replaced my ball joints, and transmission mount so far trying to do process of elimination and my u joints are in great shape. I'm stomped.

I just ordered inner and outer tie rods since my ball joints are pretty much new

If that doesn't fix your popping - check your struts . Sometimes they get sticky where they rest. Especially if it sits outside

If it turns out to still have a popping noise would that be next on the replacement list? Bc I have 160,000 miles on the car and it sits outside for the most part

Does it do if louder the first time it moves after sitting?
Can you hear it on a specific side more or only?
And before you start replacing everything try spraying possible friction areas with a lubricant (I.e. Lithium grease , pb blaster silicone )
I'd hate to see ya spend all that money and still have a noise.
Also. If you can get it to do it safely , have someone feel the car while it happens at certain spots . Grab the sway bar and jounce the car, feel the strut tops.
You'll narrow it down with some time and a friend

It's just a snapping/popping noise most of the time when I put it in gear and go. It's annoying bc I can't really specifically say where it comes from me and a few of my car friends all drove it sat by it and listened to it. Some say its coming from the shifter, then it sounds like it comes from the front of my car, then it sounds like it comes from my rear

Try lubing the struts after you drive it for a little bit. Just spray them near the seals and see if it changes. Might not go away but listen for change
