Front end shaking and popping while accelerating from a stop help me diagnose this!!
 
I need some help diagnosing this problem, When I come off a red light my front end (I can feel it in the floorboard) wobbles and makes this low squeal noise that is consistent with the wobble and then stops once I get going and I can feel a slight popping while driving and turning and vibrations aas well, so far I have removed my front driveshaft (still does it) I just got done replacing my front axle shaft U-joint it had some play in it (still does it) my bearings seem fine I got it on the lift and spun the wheel and was smooth no grinding or roughness, im thinking a ball joint but I need some other opinions any help would be great thanks for reading this long post

Sounds like a problem somewhere inside the front axle/differential.

Take a close look at the axle U-joints. See if one of the bearing caps is missing or has spun. They are famous for that. They'll do what you describe even with the driveshaft out.
