front end popping sound when turning

Hello
recently my 2010 e550 started making a popping sound when pulling out from driveway in the morning , when driving straight (freeway or city roads cant hear anything) usually when the car is cold , or been sitting for a lil bit of time , but when warms up cant really hear anything , so yea mostly when parked and i turn steering wheel side to side (not all the time tho) or when driving slowly and making a uturn.
i read somewhere that it could be sway bar bushings needed to be GLUED or replaced , oh and its coming from Right side (passenger front) side.
have you guys experienced anything like that?
and yes i already tighted and checked all bolts 2 times lol
when to do an alignment yesterday but the guy at the shop said that all my bushings and arms are in ok condtion , no leaks or anything.
any help is appreciated, thank you very much!!

If all of the bushings are fine according to the mechanic, did he check the ball joints? The weak point on my prior W211 were the ball joints. W212 seems to be okay so far. How many miles do you have?

Yea he did look at them , no leaks or cracks visible , but maybe there is smth inside of them thats not okayand not visible.
I have 84k miles on it.
Im planning on gluing sway bar bushings this Saturday if im gonna have time. 1st step , if not gonna help then gonna replace ball joints.
Weird that sometimes it all just fine camt hear a noise and sometimes not fine at all haha

Just drove to work , and it seems like after i tighten those sway bar bushings bolts , the noise got a bit worse (comes up more frequently , and usually on uneven pavement , or when making turns) didnt notice it as often before i did that

I have been putting up with this occasional crazy popping for the last 3 years at least and it has gotten worse recently.

I had the thrust bushing replaced last week. I got same noise coming from front. Will check those bolts. I was tripping, my warranty expired last Friday.

Dude thanks a lot... I just tighten the two front control arms bolt on both sides and no more annoying popping noise.
When I started the car after finishing, freaking blue smoke everywhere..it was like someone lit a firework. Turned it off and restarted all good.
