It's most likely the inner tie rod bushing that's shot. Instead of having the bushing fill up the space between the bolt holding the tie rod and the tie rod, now there's a gap. So when you make the wide turn, the play in the tie rod causes a poping sound. This is a really common problem that comes with age. A replacement set of bushings (you don't need to replace the tie rod itself) will cost you < 15 bucks (get the TWO-PIECE MOOG Poly blue colored bushing).
Installation will take a while cuz you need to remove the windsheild wiper, cowl grill, strut brace, intake resonators (all of it before the throttle). Turn the wheel ALL the way to the passenger side. Then you can very easily access the bolts holding the tie rods. Do not remove the bolts from both tierods at the same time!!! Loosen both bolts but ONLY remove the side you are working on!!! To make the job really easy, remove the outter tie rod from the strut so that you can take the entire tie rod out to get the bushing out.
