Calling Southern California Help

I have had a clunking/popping coming from the front left or middle of my '06 TJ Rubicon, Automatic, 108k. It happens at low speed turns and some bumps. Any help in Orange County would be nice. I live in Lake Forest and am willing to pay a little for someone to help me track down this noise so we can get it fixed. Took it to Holy Jim and has been like this for the last 4,000 miles or so. Would appreciate any help.. just don't have a lot of cash.

Things replaced so far:

Drivers side U joint
Drivers side sway bar link

Do you know if your problem is steering-related? Have you changed all of your fluids regularly??

Fluids should be all good, i'm not sure if its steering or suspension related but it pops when turning in parking lots and at lights, you can feel it in the floor board.

If it is steering-related, I can definitely give you some pointers. I have had steering problems since early '13 and have recently fixed all of mine. If you want to come out tomorrow, it will have to be EARLY since Riverside heats up after 10 am.

Please post what ends up being the problem. If it's lifted, make sure all your joints are torked down. The u joints sounds like a good idea too, but if you feel it in the floor board, check the stearing box too. If you need a shop closer to Irvine, check out Jeeps R Us in Laguana. I've heard great things about them. Good luck.
