Popping, Clicking, and cracking

So when I turn popping, clicking, and cracking coming from the front
When I back up and then put into drive it sounds like something from center is clicking.
And every once in awhile think I hear something from the rear driver side tire.


All possibilitys????
I am replacing all ball joints, My 2 u-joints, and the track bar.
What is the other possibilities???

Place a jack stand under the axle and jack up one side at a time. Pay close attention when jacking it up to the ball jounts. See if the outter C stays tight with the inner C or if one moves away from the other when lifting.

Once up, grab the top of the tire with one hand and the bottom with the other. Work the top in and the bottom out and vice versa. Check for play in the hub. Then press in to the top and then in the bottom and "feel" for give in the ball joints as well.

You can check for play in the Ujoints at the axle. You should also make sure that nothing else is making contact with anything when the wheel is turned. If you can get someone to star the engine and turn the wheel full lock to full lock and listen/look at the shocks TREs, brakes, ect.
