jeep makes popping sound

My 87 wrangler is making a popping sound when i say hit a bump or turn when the suspension flexs a bit. And when i give it gas or let off. Only when the suspension moves basically. The noise is coming from the front end somwhere in the front passenger side, and it seems to be right at the firewall? All new ball joints and steering. Any help??

Any way it could be a transfer case mount or motor mount? I forgot to say there is a 350 gm motor in it
