Camber issue, get wheel alignment when you get new tires. If any suspension issues are there, the alignment will tell you, because it won't be able to go into spec. without drastic changes that most alignment shops won't do(without upselling of course). The popping noise could be attributed to the lack of a ball joint boot. No grease on/in it,also gives moisture and crud a place to go. A"dry socket" if you will, will pop under load because of lack of lubrication. The alignment shop will probably tell you they won't do the alignment until the ball joint is replaced(either by them or you). Have you inspected the outer tie rods also? How about the a-arm bushings?
