04 superduty, 4" lift: Popping in front end

Ok, so I lifted the wifes truck 4" and now its popping in the front when you either turn all the way or hit a bump. At first I was thinking the track bar wasn't tight enough, but it is at 395 ft-lbs which is factory ford spec. Now I'm not really sure what else it could be that's doing it? maybe the shackles aren't tight enough, or the ubolts aren't tight enough? Any other thoughts as to what it could be?? Shes on me to fix it, so wednesday I'll spend my day off fixing whatever is wrong with it.

Also to mention, some of you will say its the sway bar bushings, but Well, there's the thing. The sway bar isn't on the truck right now because I'm waiting on my extended end links to come in, BUT when I had the truck it had an 8" lift for 2yrs and I never ran a sway bar, and it didn't make one single pop sound and road amazing for a leaf sprung truck. Now I lower it down to a 4" lift, and it's popping? Just puzzled right now.

Sounds like the leaf spring bushings. I would have thought it was the trac bar too at first.
