The pop noise could also be worn upper strut mounts, when you apply brake or acceleration it puts a load on the mounts and if they are worn it could make a pop sound.

Aren't the CV joints replaceable by your local driveshaft shop? (for MUCH less than $400/side)
That's a solution I didn't consider. If only the rolling elements are bad that might be an option. I wouldn't be surprised if the CV housings are proprietary, but maybe not. If it turns out the CV shafts are the issue, I will keep this idea in mind. Thanks

I'd suggest checking the bolts on the CV's and make sure they're not loose. If they are, they could cause the clunk (at best) or tear out chunks of the transaxle while falling out
(at worst)
