Now looka here son, does your shoulder pop in the follow through? If it pops at the hit, then you are not using your muscles and/or at the right time. When you strong arm, you are decelerating your arm and your follow through typically puts more stress on the elbow then. When you are snapping, your arm is accelerating which may put more stress on the shoulder in follow through especially if its stopped short. I would focus on your follow through and make sure your left shoulder is pointing at the target(which it should with good form) or past the target to help relieve the right shoulder stress.

Have you ever rehabbed your shoulder? Strengthening the shoulder muscles should help keep it from popping, short of surgery. A shoulder brace may help keep your shoulder from popping, but may also decrease snap and put more stress on the elbow.
