You can't grease to cv's un less you open them up.
To check ball joints jack up the truck under the LCA. Put a pry bar under the tire and lift up. If you see any play in the ball joint they are bad.

You could possibly grease the cv joint with a pointed needle grease adapter on your gun but chances are your cv need to be replaced. I have one that's like a large hypodermic needle pretty sharp.

Is the popping at a steady rythym through the turn or just a pop or two when your cranking the wheel? If it's just a pop or two then it is likely the ball-joints, Upper control arms run around $140 and lowers are under $70/ea. I've quit replacing just the upper joints and started just replacing the whole upper control arms, it's faster and the cost is about the same if not cheaper for MOOG parts.

Time to replace the CV's then. You can find them online for $60-70 all day.
