A loud popping noise always happens when turning far right. Had motor mounts replaced which mechanic said was the problem, but it still makes the sound.

Replaced front ball joints two years ago. Are these the same as the stabilizer links?
No. the stabilizer links are different. Also called sway bar links http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Energy-Suspension-2-3-8-in-L-red-sway-bar-end-link-kit/_/N-25we?itemIdentifier=353712_0_0_
Being a ford Taurus.....I would check your stabilizer links. They have metal ball ends protruding into hard plastic cups. The cups wear out and they bounce in and out making this noise. Have checked and if faulty, replace both sides of front. Good idea to do this in a pair instead of one side.
