    this just started and doesn't sound good. When turning right going down hill putting pressure on the front left wheel i hear a popping or cracking sound. I have check all of my bolts to see if anything is loose and found nothing. My ball joints are pretty bad. Would they be making noise though. What else should i look for? thanks

    Sounds like bad bearings or even a broken hub, not a locking hub but an internal part. Time to tear it apart and dig around a little.
