Default Loud popping sound coming from my front end

Hey there, when i turn my steering wheel to the left or right there is a very loud popping and squeaking sound coming from my front end. i have no idea what it is but it doesnt sound good at all. I just replaced both wheel bearing/hub assembly within the last week if that matters. The truck is a 1999 4x4 ranger xlt, Thanks for the help

Does it make the sound when you have it turned all the way, or just when u turn it a little to the left and right?

it begins making it as soon as i start turning but it gets really loud the harder i turn. i will prolly just replace both the ball joints and sway barlinks while im at it. how hard is it?
