I looked at the tres and they don't seem to be the cause but further driving I noticed if I hit a bump in the road going straight it pops seems to be coming from the passenger side. So not only when turning side to side but when I hit rough roads going straight

Has anything happened to you that would cause yours or is it just popping

Was this ever done:

I suspect you will find a TRE that is popping up and down on the tapered pin or the lower trackbar bolt is loose and popping back and forth in the mount.
If so, what was the result?

Have you dropped the control arms on the passenger side and looked at the joints for any abnormalities? I would think if the joints were in normal condition they shouldn't be able to make any "popping" noises.

Use a trac bar that uses a bushing with a larger bolt at the axle (for example, Currie's TJJ adjustable trac bar).

Or perhaps some weld washers/weld on a fresh piece of metal and re-drill.

Either welding an entire new piece on the mount or using some weld washers should help out.

How bad is the hole wallowed out? Pictures? If you get enough clamping force on the bolt it shouldn't be popping regardless.

Looks like you may have found your issue, but I thought I'd share an issue I had. I'm using Blaine's Johnny Joint washers, and my lower brackets were deformed just enough that the JJ was actually clamped between the JJ washers, but the washers weren't clamping the control arm brackets tight, so the JJ washers were actually sliding back and forth in the bracket slightly, mostly when applying the brakes in reverse, but it started doing it when driving through pot holes and such. Took me a while to find out what was going on. The fix was to weld the JJ washers to the control arm bracket. Just thought I'd throw this out there in case you might have the same thing going on.

Just torque it back down and see what happens.
