Mine used to make a popping noise after I backed it into a space, when I would leave (go forward) it would pop somewhere on the front axle, I checked all the joints and they were good, recently got it aligned and it went away, never figured it out. I can tell you it was nothing brake related, definitely a ball joint/ tie rod noise, but they are all fine.

It does it on new vehicles as well. It could be binding, but it depends on the sound. It seems wierd that it only happens going forward for some. There are
many locations in the drivetrain that have slack that could also be the cause, especially the TC, without being out of spec.

I changed the end links a while back. Man, the old ones were freaking shot. That being said, it didn't take care of the noise. It still pops when I first take off after it's been sitting for a bit. Weird.
