Kind of "pop" when turning

So the background, 2012 with about 15k. Installed 2.5" RK stock mod kit, wheels and tires about 2k ago. Just recently started to notice an occasional "pop" sound when turning. It seems to have become more often that it happens but seems to only occur at lower speeds. I had my wife to saw the wheel back and forth in the driveway to see if I could tell where it was coming from. I didn't see anything shifting or lose and the sound seems to be coming from the gear box. Anyone else had issues with this or have any advice on what else I could check? Kind of nervous about it, steering is somewhat important to driving safely.

I had a similar pop (more of a thump) that I got at very low speeds usually while turning. Ended up being my track bar needed to be torqued down.
