Default Popping sound on left front

Hello, looking for some help with figuring out my car problem. I have a 2003 legacy GT 5MT, back in October I noticed my right cv axle was going out (aka popping sounding). When I replaced the right side that noise when away but then I noticed I still had a popping sound which was coming from the left side. I figured my left cv axle was also bad so I replaced that. However I still have the noise, so I've replaced wheel bearings L & R, noticed that my left lower ball joint was bad so replaced that as well. Thought possibly I got a bad cv axle so I replaced it a second time.

Tie rods look good so I haven't done anything with that.

The popping sound only happens when I am driving 15 mph or less, happens with turning both directions, is most pronounced when I am turning into a parking spot. If I'm driving straight there is not noise, if I'm taking a corner at 20 mph or higher there is no noise. Also the popping only starts after I have been driving it for awhile.

Right now I'm thinking it could be possibly related to steering, maybe transmission related?

Any thoughts?
