Various possibilities, may be a loose caliper or pad. Maybe in the suspension. Ball joints, Radius arm bushings, control arm bushings Mine is doing the same thing. If it is a manual shift, try putting the e-brake on, put it in reverse, and ease the clutch out. If you hear the popping it is probably a control arm, wheel bearing, or cv axle.

That loud popping noise is most likely a sign that your CV axles are worn out. If you turn to the right and you hear the noise most likely it is the right side. and visa versa for if you turn left.

You may need to have your front end aliment checked out, also, your tire might be low in air pressure

AnswerDon't know for sure, but it sounds like bad sway bar bushings. Answerthat means your cv axle u joints are going out. when you turn left and it makes the popping noise or like a galoping horse, that means the right side is bad. and visaversa for turning right. it should cost around 150-250 to fix. - On my 2002 Cavalier it made that noise and it was my strut mount had gone bad. Was about $50 to have it replaced since it is kind of dangerous to do.

Not much to go on here. If you have ever had rotator cuff surgery, it might be your left shoulder popping.

The front hub bearings are a common source of these noises on the these models.

Assuming that there are no worn parts in your vehicles front end, the cause could be excessive toe-in. Have the front end alignment checked.

The caliper could be hanging up. Or your right front brake line could be coming apart or kinked. that will cause it to pull left.

When you turn right the weight of the vehicle shifts to the left, which could cause rubbing of several things on the left side.
