Sounds like a U joint to me... but I'm no expert.

Could be the transmission mount. Lifted Titans tend to wreak havoc on them. But I think you hear it clunk on acceleration.

I have a similar clunk in my Ranger. After rebuilding the rear axle and u-joints it went away slightly for a while and now it's back. We think it's the transmission. Driving up hill and letting off the gas will make it clunk every time.

also that transmission mountis known to go ,you should look at it yourself. It it a rubber bushing with metal bracket and it might look ok to somebody that does not know whast to look for. the rubber will split apart and you end up with NO connection.

for the turning i don't think their really is noise i just feel the pop so i assumed there was a popping noise to but i haven't actually heard it. when i had my jeep i had the same pooping time thing in my front suspension and put some grease in the track bar/tie rod and it fixed it could that be the problem with mine. i really haven't looked at my suspension. 2008 LE
