Popping in reverse

My other major issue I need figured out. Getting a nasty popping when stopping after moving at decent speed in reverse. Used to be mostly the right side, now it seems like the left. Sound like way too much noise for pad movement. Almost sounds like something popping back into place. Possibly my sway bar links that I already know are bad? Why wouldn't it do it going forward?

Check the rear trac-bar. Mine was doing it for a while because it was a tad loose. Also check the upper control arm bushings because the axle could be rotating up when you are stopping.

This is what I started to hear in the last few days. It happens when I back out and turn to the right while doing so. It never happens at any other time. It seems like it needs to sit overnight. It doesn't doing it going forward and even in reverse when I back out at work. Only in the morning when I first back out. Once in a while, while turning (I think left), I feel a couple of light bumps in the steering wheel.
