Clunkin and Poppin

I gave up looking because i have no one that will turn the wheel for me while i go under and put my hand on stuff and feel for the pop. It sound like a bad tie rod end pop but that cant be it i just replaced those Saturday. While i was in there i greased my upper and lowers and the new tie rod ends. Could it be the shocks? It only happens when I'm under 4mph and turning left or right. Here is a picture showing all the new work.

check the bolts on the bottom of the shock. somehow mine flew off once but my inner rods were junk too so i replace them while i was at it

come to think of it, i destroyed upper shock bushings every 3-4 months and it clunked too

I was going to say that.
I replaced my tie-rod ends, and noticed the bushing was missing also, so i did them both at the same time. i thought it was the tie-rods making the noise, (they weren't yet, but needed replaced) but it was probably the shocks.
