You did not say what make, model, or year of the vehicle?
All we can assume is from the "Bently Cars and Truck" category.
But if it were a broken spring, then only one side would do down. Since there was no fluid sprayed, we know it is not a hydro-elastic system. That leaves an air system like a Landrover.
The fact it make a popping sound is good, because that is most likely just a hose that has ruptured, and easily fixed. You should be able to trace the leak from the hissing sound.

    If there is a leak in an air suspension system, don't drive it.
    That would wear out the air pump constantly running.
    Locate the leak by listening.
    If it is an air bag, they are easy to replace.

You will need to have the air suspension bags checked one may have burst.

SOURCE: popping and crunching sounds from the front end axles when you take a curve

Your best bet would be to have the CV joints inspected. When they go bad they have a tendency to pop and crunch and will eventually fall apart if they are not replaced.

SOURCE: POPPING IN THE FRONT END?

It could be worn suspension parts, like ball joints, tie rod ends, worn bushings. It is best to have a Front End Shop take a look at it to determine what part is worn out.

Front is making noise when I turn


Kim:

Check your wheel bearings and ball joints. Checking the wheel bearings: stand next to the front tire, crouch down, put your hands on the top of the tire, and try to rock the top of the tire by pushing the top of the tire away from you and pulling the top of the tire toward you (rock it hard and fast). do both front tires. Any noise or sideways movement of the tire is bad, (Bearings are worn) and needs to be repaired. Then, stand at the front corner of the car, and push down on the front corner of the car repeatedly (rocking the corner of the car up and down (Rock it up and down Hard) If you hear the popping noise your ball joints need to be replaced. If these tests don't work but you still get the popping noise when you drive, take the car to a mechanic. Popping noises from the front end of a car is dangerous. If anything happens up there, you could lose your steering!

Popping or knocking heard in front end when riding


Sounds like the Spring may be broken or there is another loose front end part such as a ball joint or a spring seat or something like that.

I had a broken spring on my 1990 Cadillac Deville and didn't know it until looking at it up under the wheel, and experiencing a popping or knocking sound when turning.

It could also be the bearing cap area problem.

these things only last about 5years. i'd recomend converting. unless you want to keep putting $$ into it. but first check the hoses to make sure they are not leaking. in which case, it's a cheap fix replacing the hoses.
