Replaced both axles and axle boots still having loud noiseo right side

2003 grand cherokee ! WJ body. jeep.
why not take it to a real shop and ask them to find the true cause.
in our shop we have an electronic stethoscope ( a $50 tool) t
that finds causes, easy.
and for sure LOCATION. (if R/F then it is., so look only there)
bad wheel bearings, bad rotors. bad brakes, caliper guides seized.
loose hub nuts.
bad shock. or falling off>?
cracked wheel. damaged suspension parts, loose ball joints.
a good mech, can flex these parts, parked.
and find what is loose? find one, or go to a suspension shop
or a pro brake shop.
NOISE, only moving?
only bouncing?
only under power ?
only coasting?
in any gear. ?
only turning.?
what?? hopeless for me to guess, id be hands all over car.
see why posting here is useless, reason, we cant drive it and hear it.!!! there are 3000 parts on the car, any can make noise.

see suspension here.

Front passenger side broken axle

Need to replace the drive shaft. Aftermarket parts work fine. The biggest issue is removing inside connection to the half shaft. The clip ring tension is stronger than the boot holding the inboard joint on the drive shaft. To break it loose get a large screw driver and from under the car in front hit the inboard joint hard several times until it over comes the clip ring. Remember... always use jack stands when working under the car.

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel

this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps

See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.
