popping in frony end

I have a 97 Grand Cherokee 4 wheel drive and I have a popping in the front end. It only does it when you do a hard left and it don't do it every time. Sometimes it will pop once and sometimes it will pop 4 or 5 times in a row and the popping goes with the speed of the vehicle. I have replaced all four ball joints, the drivers side (short ) axle and the stabilizer bushings with no luck. Has anyone else had this problem? Please respond quickly as I need to get this issue resolved.

Do you have a Quadratrack? (full time 4wd?) If so you may have a dying viscous coupler.

If you would be so kind as to fill in your Jeeps profile, (motor, transmission, transfer case, differentials) we can help you without making guesses about the problem.
