Steering - Snap, Pop, and Bang

Hi - I'm investigating a new problem with the 2006 Wrangler that started last night.

When I turned into the driveway, I felt and heard a bang. The problem continued this morning. When making slow left or right turns, something in the front is making an alarming sound. The worst was when coming to a stop while turning and I hit a bump at the bottom of a ramp with a stop sign that was the beginning on an incline.

In the parking garage, with lots of sharp turns required, it really seemed to snap with a bang. This is not felt in the steering wheel.

Do you have any insight?
