It's not uncommon for the slip yoke to make a popping noise, try pulling the dust cover and greasing it.

I bet it's the slip yoke, as long as it's a 2 piece drive shaft.
I drilled and tapped mine so I could grease it.

I took it off about 2 weeks ago to change the grease and looked over everything good besides the bolts dang I guess I'll take it off again
