Steering Gear Box Poping?

So I was turning into a parking lot this morning going slow and I heard a pop noise as I turned. I pulled into a spot and left it running and wiggled the steering wheel back and forth, from about 11-2 o'clock positions. As I did this is was popping each time i changed direction with the wheel. Best I can tell is its the steering gear box.

Does this sound like a possibility and if so is my box going out?

Have someone turn the wheel back and forth while you watch underneath.

Ok she just got home and had her wiggle it. Looks like its the tie rod end on the drag link where it connects to the pitman arm. It wasn't popping again (go figure) but I felt it and could feel it popping.

Hmm, sounds like a reason to get the Currie HD Steering set up huh
