did you re grease them as you were sposed to
and another thing it could be is your tie rod ends or bushings ar bad
also did you torque the bolts to the proper specs
does it only do it when its turning more info would be greatly apriciated so we can help

yeah i torqued em all down and re-greased em so they are good. The popping happens when going over bumps on hard acceleration and deceleration. other then that it's quiet. I did look at the links and they look new.

you may need new bushings on the entire front end as my truck does the same thing but not as much as my brothers trucks i took at look at his and mine and we both need to replace our bushings on everything in teh front
so maybe that is what is wrong with yours
