Default Suspension noise "pop" when hard cornering both direction

I've been working to fix an issue with my MSM when AutoX'ing. When hard cornering and slalom side to side, I here a loud "pop" when going either direction. Things that have changed then heard the noise.

RB 1.125" Sway bar
Vmaxx coilovers (FM V8 springs up front) set fo4 12" front hub center to fender
225/45/15 BFG Rivals
Alignment
RB adjustable endlinks

I believe it started after the install of the Rivals and the Alignment. I though it may bet endlinks (stock) so I replaced them with RB adjustable. "POP" was still there.

I videoed a quick clip in a parking lot. Attached is the video link. The pop is at the 6 second mark. It looks like the lower control arm is moving at the bushing.

***NOTE*** In the video the sound is not very loud, but from inside the car it sounds like someone is hitting the floor with a brick.

Any help is appreciated

Sway binding? Did you lube the bushings?

I lubed the sway quite a bit. I'm leaning towards the eccentric bolts because the sound has been since the tire install and alignment. I'm gonna try and check the sway again this week just to verify everything looks good.

My car has been doing that since October, but in the Rear. I was thinking it was my Endlinks or Eccentric bolts.

Could also be the end links although those wont be loud. Those are more of a clunk.

I had a loose alignment bolt[s?] right after an alignment and it made a large popping/clunking noise. Brought it bad to the shop that did the alignment, and sure enough, something was loose and the alignment had slipped. I told them to torque them to 120% of spec and I don't plan on reusing them.

I took another video this morning. The sound is at the about 2/3rds through the video.
