Default Lower control arm bushings bad?

I've got a 2000 3.0L 2wd XLT and i'm about to put in some new brakes and rotors. I have an ANOYING poping sound when driving and it can be felt through the steering wheel. At 40k i replaced the upper control arms and ball-joints and I have 95k miles on the truck now. I don't think it would be the uppers, but what else could it be? Lower bushings, or lower ball joints? Any way to check?

Check your tie rod ends, inner and outer. Check all the sway bar bushings and make sure the mounts on the frame are tight. Also check to make sure your upper arm bolts are tight.
