Usually the CV Joint pops when worn making turns so check that out. The bad one will pop when only putting a load on it. Here an example, say the left side is bad and you make a right turn. It will not make the popping noise only unless both sides are bad
Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing? If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.
