Steering noise/catch-"pop" felt turning wheel

Searched the forums but can't find the answer to the specific problem.

My steering feels like it catches and then pops almost when I turn the wheel from left to right, just past 12 o'clock. You can feel it in the steering wheel and hear the creak/pop inside and outside the car. Power steering is working, but it definitely does not feel right and is very consistent. It also makes a older creaking noise when turned all the way to the left or right, at the full turn of the wheels. Not sure if these are related.

Your help and expertise is appreciated.
Thanks!

I would check the lower ball joints. Pretty sure that is the culprit.
