2001 Isuzu Rodeo Question Popping sounds when making slow sh

I've recently had a bunch of work done on my rodeo - transmission rebuild, cv boots replaced. It's starting to make a noise more often now and we thought replacing the cv boots - which really needed to be done anyway - would fix the noise problem. But it has not. When I make a sharp turn, like into a parking space, or going through a drive through, it makes a loud pop. Initially my mechanic - who rebuilt my transmission, thought that this could be due to the CV boots needing to be replaced. Which made sense to me because it only happens when I'm making a hard turn, and at a very slow speed. I had a tire fixed and the guy told me I need new shocks. I'm hoping replacing the shocks could fix this noise? But I'm afraid it could be something worse. I've put a ton of money into my rodeo recently and I plan to keep it. I'm really hoping this isn't a huge problem. Any ideas? I'm worried. Thank you!
Do you

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

The CV's run a very close tolerance and if the boots were damaged for any length of time the hardfacing on the bearings and the CV housing will wear due to lack of grease, if this is the case, just fitting new boots and re greasing will not fix the problem, the CV's I feel will have to be replaced.
