So I have the rant banging cranks on my bmx and one thing I noticed all the time. My sprocket always come loose or my sprocket will bend a little causing my chain to make slight noises, I’m not sure what’s going on I do have this 19mm adapter for my sprocket but I noticed it’s alto thicker then my sprocket. Can that be a issue? The cranks are 8spline not like does fancy 48 spline so my sprocket has to be bolted down to the crank arm

That would be an issue. File the top-hat washer(adapter, as you called it) until it's a little less than flush with the sprocket.
