You have either the ujoints failing, or the front of the driveshaft (slip yoke) is sticking and not sliding in and out like it should. Remove driveshaft, clean & lube with good teflon grease.

Clicking in wheels whn turning either way .Also a LOUD poping sound when just driving straight ,But not all the time.


This is your CV joints in your drive shaft(s). Check your CV boots, you will probably find them dirty and greasy, and that grease has been slung in your wheel wells is from your broken CV boots.
I would suggest taking your vehicle to a reliable auto center, and getting a quote for repair.
Please let me know.

Backing up very loud grinding like bearings


I would investigate the transfer case. By your description here it sounds as if the gears inside are worn and the drive chain inside is rubbing, causing the loud noise you hear.

Cracking or breaking sound when turning mainly when parking


I doubt it. I heard the same noise from my old Accord when the CV boot was going out. If you heard breaking from the drive shaft I believe the next thing you'd see is it rolling down the street. If the drive shaft were making that sound you would not be able to continue driving.
