Slight popping noise?

It's not all the time and has not been doing this for long. My car has 85k miles on kw sleeve kit and I have had no previous issues. When I turn the wheel medium to hard I hear a popping up front maybe camber arms or something wearing out? I am not running an aggressive offers at all. Didn't know if there was something common on these to go out with a bit higher mileage? I have a vehicle inspection in 1000 miles so they will find out I'm sure but I wanted to mention it and didn't want to sound stupid when I explain it.

How many miles are on the kw sleeve kit? Some springs when new will have a popping noise to them when turning hard left or right when car is moving slow or stationary. The upper coils seem to compress and rest on each other. When turning hard the spring has some slight twisting (not up/down but more so side to side) movement. This poping sound could be coming from your springs. Jack your car up and look at the upper coils and check for wear marks on the coils where they would be rubbing one another.

Maybe check your tension arm bushings.

Had this issue on a set of KW's of my VW a couple years ago. Look for any marks on your springs, the sound coming from mine was due to spring binding.

I have a similar issue with my springs, a little bit of creaking when braking and every so often popping when turning. Not sure what to do

Like others said, I would check for spring binding and sway bar end links first.
