Question Suspension Problems (again)

I am having more trouble with my suspension/steering system in the front on my 99 2.5RS. Here's the situation, for anybody who doesn't remember my past posts on this topic (sorry for the long post!):

This car was wrecked back in January while racing, and was in the shop for about 3 months as a result. The car was hit directly in the driver's side B-pillar by an out-of-control Eagle Talon TSi (dang Eclipses), which induced a long, sweeping slide into the median. The front hit the 5" median, the car flew up in the air, and landed on the median with the front wheels on one side, rear wheels on the other.

Okay, that said, I got the shop to fix the caster, which was out by over two degrees in the front, making the wheels physically off-center in the wheel wells. Well, I was happy to get my car back in mostly normal condition.

Well, now there's another problem. I think it may be related to a suspension joint. When braking, the car will more easily turn to the right, but resists turning to the left, which it really should considering how stiff my suspension is. So turning to the right is too easy under braking. Under acceleration everything is good, which indicates to me that the rear suspension is in good shape. But the front has a problem. Well, I noticed last night that while just sitting in one place, when I turn the wheel from side to side about 45 degrees in either direction, it is easier to turn the wheel to the left, and it makes a *pop* noise every time! To the left, it is quiet and resistant, like it should be! I am too confused to continue trying to diagnose the problem. Anybody have any ideas?
