My car is making a popping noise when I drive and a creaking noise when I brake. What is wrong with my car?

Time for an inspection by a live human being. Ford has way more than their share of steering and suspension parts that can come apart and lead to loss of control. In particular, ball joints are a common problem for the symptoms you described, but there could also be a less serious binding upper strut mount. The people at a tire and alignment shop will find steering and suspension problems.
