Question Popping in Steering Wheel, FIX?

For the past 1,800 miles I've felt a slight pop or click in my steering wheel when hitting bumps, it mainly happens when I back into my driveway with the wheel turned halfway, but it can happen with the steering wheel straight as well. I noticed that it doesn't do it first thing when I drive the truck from a cold start, but after the truck heats up on a long drive it does it pretty regularly. I saw some people were having similar issues when I joined the forum back 2014, but there didn't seem to be a consensus on what was going wrong at that time; if you've had this issue what fixed it for you?

My truck currently has about 46,800 miles on it, the popping sensation started at about 45,000 miles and it's slowly becoming more noticeable along with a whole bunch of other unwanted noises, but that's another issue.

Start with lubing the steering joints, perhaps.
