Default Camry 07 Clacking popping sound

hello everybody i have a problem with my camry 07 with 64,000 miles, recently starting doing a clacking popping sound when turning left of right. the weird this is it only does it when im backing up and i make a sharp turn. when the car makes a turn on the street i dont hear it anymore is only when backing out. i cant seen to figure out. I already check the VC joint cause that was the most possible reason why, but they look in pretty good shape no leaks no cracking nothing. does anybody else in here might now what could be wrong? suspension maybe ? i dont know.

It does sound like a CV joint gone bad. When you back up does the clacking sound match the speed of the car? It might also be good to find an empty parking lot and have someone else drive the car while you stand out side and they do a few tight circles around you, forward and reverse. Just because the boots are good does not mean the shafts are.
