If the door has expanded, that it is catching the frame, you are going to have to undo the screws for the latch side of the frame and move it over a bit, if that is where it is catch. Same goes for the top, if it is catching there.

Like I said before, you can tell if it is catching, because there will be bare metal or rub marks, from it doing it over time.
I honestly can't tell where the pop is even coming from. I can feel it on my hand while the door closes.

You are going to have to listen for it, from the outside or inside, and then listen for it. If it is just you feeling it, you should be able to figure out where it is coming from then.

My old storm door used to slam shut. I bought a new closer. 30 bucks..problem solved.

On my new Larson door, after about 6 months a loud pop began just as you describe.

The installation screws they provided were not long enough. I replaced them with 2.5 inch and problem solved

Try the longer screws first and then get a new closer. If it doesn't fix the problem you can take the closer back to the store.
