Default HELP!!! popping noises on right turns

its usually comming out of right turns, not so much going into them. oldsmobile said it was balljoints, other people said it was strut mounts/bearings. well, i figured i needed new struts anyways because ive been itching to install my eibach drop springs, so i got kyb struts and put them in today

well, the front struts/springs/mounts/balljoints are in. im doing the back tomorrow afterwork, but i took it for a spin. it still makes the popping noise on right turns.

the only things even left are drive axels or steering rack. how do i test so i replace the one that needs replacing? Is it possible to grease the rack? does it have zerks? because i know the problem went away for a month after i got a oilchange/front end grease

when its jacked up, i can grab the tire and turn them about 3/4" (as if i was turning the wheel to make a turn) but its not only loud pops, its somtimes soft multiple pops. ughh......

does look a little funny since ive got eibachs in the front, stocks in the back, but the eibachs will go in the back tomorrow.

our old van makes a noise whenever you turn the wheel alot due to a moving spring. All we need to replace is the rubber thing that holds it in place.

my new and old struts have a metal stopper (kind of like a step) then a rubber insulater that goes on top of it
