Did you check your shocks and the mounting plates that it bolts too?

Sounds very similar to what my truck was doing, sounds like your strut mounts (I know these trucks dont use and actual macpherson strut, but its the best way I can describe it) Start there, and pray that you dont have to replace the whole unit.....big $$$$$

My truck makes the same noise... I noticed all my rubber bushings are trashed where the torsion bar connects to the front of frame and the same for the ones in my rear spring mounts....

Check the upper control arm bolts. The alignment shop left mine loose, and it clunked over bumps and when making turns.

Not to highjack this thread but after replacing my shocks front/back, I still had popping in the front end. I here a pop if i slight turn the steering wheel left and right quickly. Also grabbing the front wheel at 3 and 9 and moving it toward and away from me. Lugs are tight. am I looking at tie rods or control arms? I have also noticed at highway speeds 70-75mph I get a viberation-smooth-viberation-smooth effect.

My truck is making a popping noise in the front end. Especially when I back out of the driveway and going over bumps while I'm turning. It feels like it's in the steering somewhere. Every single ball joint and bushing has been replaced. Anyone point me in the right direction, this thing is nickel and dime'ing me to death!
