From the title above, I can't determine what year/make/model of truck/car you're asking about. So, my answer is somewhat generic and may not be applicable.
A popping noises when turning almost always indicates a worn or damaged outer CV joint. To verify this condition, place the vehicle in reverse, crank the steering wheel to one side and drive the vehicle backwards in a circle. If the noise gets louder, it confirms the diagnosis and the need for a new CV joint or replacement shaft assembly.
Look at your steering linkage and check for noticeable damage (loose nuts/bolts or damaged boots). Also, check the bolts/rivet holding your crossmember in place (I've seen these work lose and under pressure from turning one way or another will shift and pop). If your vehicle is a 4X4, it could be inner tie-rod (drag link) or other associated linkage.
Feel free to post some additional info about your problem and vehicle and I'll try to narrow the field.
Hope this helps and good luck.

It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.
