Loud popping sound in front driver side while driving

Sounds like the sway bar might be broken. Turn the steering wheel so you can look into the inside of the fender behind the wheel. There is a large bar that connects both the front lower control arms together, sometimes this bar breaks and rubs the ends together causing a popping noise.

Hit curb while turning, tire rubs firewall

If you did not damage the frame, you more than likely damaged the lower control arm (a triangle shaped aluminum part which mounts to steering knuckle(tire side) and two bushing mounts (To frame) Check the condition against the undamaged side. If the control arm is damaged see if you can get one from a junk yard. If you do replace any part yourself Get an alignment immediately after repair.

Popping noise when i push my brakes, and when I turn to the left it sunds like something is rubbing

I believe you're dealing with two separate issues...

1: Something "Popping"... Take a look at the inner bushings on the lower control arms. They may be worn and allowed to slide forward and back. This was the case on my 2000 LHS. New part was only $45 and it took less than an hour to change each side.

2: Something "Rubbing"... My best guess would be to look at the rubber that surrounds the rack&pinion as it comes through the inner fender. That flap (those flaps) often tear off and might be rubbing on the inside of your right wheel as you turn left.
