weld it up and re drill it ? weld the washers to the pipe ? the bolt must have been loose for it to be able to get out of round to begin with.

Front upper CA?
More likely, the bolt, nut, washers, and/or bushings are loose/bad.

If tube is bad now too... get another front cross-member.

Edit to add> If you have Polyurethane bushing... Poly bushing inner sleeve will start to move before OE rubber. Poly sleeve has no teeth to prevent that and if the bolt is under torque even a little the parts can wear sooner then OE types..
