Popping when turning/ccornering.

So, when I take the Jeep on a corner, or when I hit a rough patch of the road, I hear a loud pop/thump. It's only during cornering or while the suspension is traveling up and down on a bumpy road. Bushings in the sway bar are gone, but I don't know if that's enough to cause the issue, help?

Fix the known issues first before trying to find the unknown.

Legitimately? I didn't assume it was such a big deal. Would that cause as much body roll as I've been seeing lately? Because that seems relevant.

I'll fix everything as I can. It's hard being a college student and being broke! Haha. But I just wanted to be sure my Jeep wasn't about to go down again, with the issues I've had lately.

You'd be surprised what having proper sway bar links can do.

Bad sway bushings, shocks, and especially worn out control arm bushings all cause body roll. Mainly the lower control arm bushings.
A good way to tell if they are bad is if they are original stock bushings.
They are certainly bad by this point.
100k miles is all they are really worth.
Mine were toast by 127k. Rode like a boat.
