Pop sound when turning

So since yesterday, i have been experienced couple pop sound from the rear bottom when making turns. It happens turning left and right but not all the time.
The pop sound is as if a metal couldnt resist and pop. No error code in dash, anyone have similar issue?
Car is bone stock, had changed to aftermarket exhaust couple times, but is now stock exhaust if that help.

Is it worse when the car is cold? Do you notice it more on slow sharp rights?

I had something very similar when turning at low speeds over small dips and bumps. It turned out to be my driver side control arm...and I only have 35k miles. Worth a check.

Check your rear diff bolts, mine was doing this before it snapped. Stock squishy bushings cause alot of movement.
