Then right front pops like I hit a bump and****** to right side. Happens intermittently, every 15-20 miles or so but very scary when it does, what would cause this?
Do you
have the same problem?

Can you rewrite the symptoms with different words? Does the steering wheel shift position when this happens? Does the car pull one way if you let go of the steering wheel? How does the tire wear look?

I would suspect a bad CV joint but description is rather vague so it could possibly be due to worn control arm ball joints.

Just have someone check your frontend componets. Could be bad ball joints.
