Poping noise in front passenger wheel when in full turn to the right

My 1998 with OME HD lift and 32" kevlars started making a piping noise when I reverse at full turn to the right. Mostly noticeable in reverse. Planning on lifting it tomorrow and checking it out. Any suggestions where to look specifically? I am thinking wheel bearing or cv joint without starting my investigation.

Check your track bar and see if it is loose. Especially if you did not put in an adj one with the lift. I opted to save a bit when I did the lift on mine, and redrilled the track bar mount. I had the same noise, and it went away completely when I installed an adj. unit and went back into the oem hole.
If that does not help, look at the ball joints and tie rod ends.

Power steering is good however just now noticed this missing nut don't know the name of the part but it's connected to a bar that wraps around the front of the grill to the other side of the suspension. Not sure if its the noise but it's rubbing. On my way to pick up a replacement nut now

Your front axle doesn't have any CV joints, only u-joints which would be my first suspicion.

Yes it will make a clunking sound. I just replaced my sway bar today because the ball was poping out of the socket while going around turns and bumps. When i jacked the front end up off of the ground it poped out and made the exact clunking sound that i would hear while driving.

i had stock sway bars, so they look different than yours. however just jack the front end up and look to see if anything is loose or makes any noise.

I noticed that once I got under there. Found out that my noise is coming from the tires hitting the lower control arm. Not sure why it started doing this 6 months after installing the tires and never did it before. I put a washer behind the nut on the steering stop on both sides and looks like I'm good to go. I just wish I knew why it started doing it in the first place. I like the fix, just wish it was for correcting the problem, not masking it.
