Play in front end

Bought my wife a 2002 Wagon about 6 months ago and have been lurking around since then. Learned some good stuff around here since then. I have a question about a problem. Ive searched all over and found some ideas. The problem is a loud pop going over bumps slowly. When slowing (under about 50mph) it gets what feels like a wheel bounce. So I jacked up the front end and started looking and feeling for anything wrong. Hands at 12/6 and ball joints feel fine. Hands at 9/3 drivers side feels ok but passenger has about 2 or 3 inches play. I thought it may be the tie rod ends. Kinda checked those out but it is more like the rack and pinion has the play in it. It only does it on the passenger side. Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance.
