Popping noise in front end

I've noticed when I pull in a driveway or something similar to that, I get a pop/clunk in my front end on the passenger side. All of my ball joints seem to be good, could it be a shock?

If you haven't already, jack the tire off the ground... Sure sounds like ball joint... I could not get any play with the tire on the ground, but was loose as heck off the ground...

It could be the track bar as well.

This thing is a little bit surprising that making noise. There are vary few common one's that give this type complaint. And if really does then you are one of them. Consult some qualified technician to recognize the problem in proper way not the ordinary junk.

I have the same popping in my front end and its only when going slow and turning into a parking lot or driveway. I just had my whole front end gone over after my accident, he said everything was tight. then after driving it i noticed the popping and i went back and asked him and he said its common for these truck to have the bushing go bad in the steering box and it causes that popping sound. he said its ok to drive for awhile with it like that, i plan to replace it one of these days

mine has a loud pop from the front driver's side that is a loose body mount bolt. I haven't got around to tightening it yet. it's supposed to be really common the superduty.

As TXOutlaw stated, jack up one side of the front end, until you have enough room to get a nice big pry bar under the tire, and lift up on the pry bar, while looking for any movement the ball joints, a very common problem, even on low mileage superdutys. When my ball joint were bad, when I bought it, it didnt make any noise. It did however develop a significant pop pulling in and backing out when my sway bar bushings were bad. As bwmntbiker stated, check your track bar bushings

Thanks everybody. I checked the ball joints when I did my leveling kit. I'll check the track bar and body mounts this week when I do my quad fog lights.
