Click/pop from front when turning steering wheel

Hi guys, after doing a moderate trail I started hearing a loud click or sometimes two clicks in succession when I turn my steering wheel.

It doesnít happen every time I turn, but happens maybe a fourth of the time. It happens when I turn to one side more often than the other. It kind of sounds like there is some tension that is released. The car can be sitting still, not in forward or reverse motion and itíll still occur when steering.

There is no sound with wheel rotation, just turning the steering wheel. I think it is coming from the front left or front middle.

This weekend I spent a few hours retightening up the suspension bolts to spec on the left side, and it didnít make a difference. I did install my own suspension so I was worried something may have loosened. I didnít get to the right side so Iíll try that next but I didnt think the sound was coming from the right.

The CV and tie rod boots all looked intact but I worry that maybe something inside is broken. I did put my car into a large flex situation on the trail, but I drive pretty slow and carefully so Iíll be surprised if it was damaged.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
