Snap/Pop noise???

So, when I'm driving my 92 YJ on the street, turn right and hit a curb like when I'm parking in a driveway, I hear this loud pop. I can feel it in the floor boards and not in the steering wheel. I've had my wife drive so I can look for it, but can't see anything. The sound is louder inside the jeep than outside, so I think it's something under the hood. I have put a wrench to every bolt I can find from under the jeep and still can't find it. Anyone have any ideas? It's only when I turn right, and then hit a bump or dip of some sort.

Have you checked the body mounts? I had a similar noise when I turned to the right of hit a bump/dip. The right side body mount by the TC support was pulled straight through.

That's a good thought. I'll check and let you guys know. Anyone else have any ideas I can test out?

the steering box is known to pop really loud even if it's bolted on tight.

Mine does the same thing, but usually when I'm turning the wheel hard from post to post while reversing (I back into my driveway).

It also could be the leaf packs shifting.

It could also be your transmission mount is bad, or your battery sliding around.

Checked the body mounts, they all look good. I deleted the trackbars and sway bar, so it's not those mounts.
