Help with front end Popping noise

2017 with 61K miles has developed a front in popping noise that I can't seem to locate.
Sounds like it is coming from driver's side. Only thing I could find loose was the driver's C/V axle at the diff. I replaced front sway bar bushings and had local 4x4 shop install the ECGS clam shell bushing.They torqued all the front suspension bolts and said bushings, etc appeared to be ok.

When I picked it up it seemed to have been an improvement, but the popping noise is back.

Threw and old gen1 Gopro on this morning and snapped a video before it started raining, so excuse the bad video.

Popping noise is only while moving at slow speeds and turning, don't notice while turning wheel back and forth stationary in driveway.

Need to locate and fix before buying new tires and lift.

Disregard the shop claims and make sure those rear Lower Control Arm bolts are torgued properly. IIRC they need to be torqued to 131 ft lbs. The telltales is the sound occuring as you shift from forward to reverse and back again.

Update:
Had to drop my Talons skid/cat shield to get torque wrench on rear LCA nuts. Service manual stated 129 ft lbs for the bolt and nuts. All seemed to be torqued as I didn't notice any movement prior to reaching torque specs.

However, initial test drive did not have the popping noise, so hopefully that was my issue and it doesn't return.

All my noises went away with bushing replacements on sway bar.

My pop was from the UCA bolts. Mine always seem to loosen up every month or couple months
