Put grease on the barrings that are on the ram rods. (the two rods you see when the motor is trimmed all the way up)

hydraulic fluid?

I would check the fluid level. But the poping will happen when trimming up becuase you are extended the piston/shaft (yes i said shaft) and there is not enough fluid to push the piston anymore.

Just a thought, that is what mine was doing.

umm im not 100 percent sure but im thinking yeah
If it's when in gear then probably the lateral support rubbing on the transom bracket. Nothing much you can do about it if it is, but make sure where the noise is coming from before you decide it's nothing to worry about.
