Sounds like you have a constant velocity joint going out. If you can tell what side it is coming from that will be the one to replace. You can buy most of these cv joint shaft rebuilt at any local auto parts store, generally run any where from 70.00 to 120.00 exchange. They are not real difficult to replace if you want to tackle it, but it is hard to accomplish if you have never replaced one. It requires the removal of the suspension on the affect side. "wheel, brake caliper, steering knuckle, and tie rod end. and most probably the sway bar linkage. It is a good idea to have the alignment checked after replacement, just in case you don't get it back in exactly the place. Hope this helps.

sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.
make sure your tire pressures and sizes are all the same then try backing a go froward while turning. and moving the shifter in and out of 4x4. if that does not get it then get all 4 tires off the ground with jack stands and allow the wheels to turn slowly while you move the shifter in and out of 4x4. USE CAUTION IF SPINNING ALL 4 WHEELS OF THE GROUND. if that does not get then the t-case will likely need to be disassembled and looked into.
CHECK YOUR U-JOINTS ON THE HALF SHAFTS BETWEEN THE KNUCKLE AND AXLE HOUSING HIGHER MILEAGE DANA 30 AXLE ESPECIALLY WITH FULL TIME FOUR WHEEL DRIVE THESE JOINTS WILL RUST OUT OR WEAR OVER TIME OVER TIME. IF THEY A IN GOOD ORDER CHECK UPPER AND LOWER BALL JOINTS DO THIS BY JACKING UP FRONT AXLE (USE JACK STANDS) GRASP BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM OF WHEEL AND ROCK BACK AND FORTH IF THE IS EXTREME PLAY IN WHEEL YOU NEED BALL JOINTS. ALSO CHECK LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS THESE WEAR OUT WITH HIGH MILEAGE
not trying to be rude but do be sure the wheel is tight. a build up of corrosion on the wheel or hub could cause the wheel not to set n lug studs correctly. that would cause a knock noise and will shake the wheel
