I would suspect either the passenger-side track bar mount or perhaps your tie rod ends. With the wheels on the ground, watch & listen to the front-end steering components for unwanted noises/clunks/movement while a helper turns the steering wheel back & forth.

For sure double check the tie rod ends bushings.
