[Healeys] snap crackle and pop

If you've got wire wheels it's the spokes creaking a popping. If you do have wires, do you have rust bleeding from the nipples where they are attached to the rim? That is a sign that the nipples are moving and that is where the cracking and popping is comming from. Years ago my '67 BJ8 was doing that and I went to alloy wheels.

When turning hard to the right (slow moving) I get a lot of these noises at the left front wheel area.  Assume it is the tie rod?  I first thought it was a loose spinner but that was not it.  Any ideas?
