Rear Sway Bar moving back and forth

I am getting a strange noise when I start off in first gear. I was looking around underneath and found that my rear sway bar is moving back and forth, but I can't seem to tighten any more. Is it normal for it to move? I would not think so.

Thanks.

Yes it does have some normal side-to-side movement built in so it can move when the axle is flexed when offroading.

If you're getting a clunking sound when you take off, check the rear muffler mount. Mine would hit the fuel tank skid and clunk under moderate accelleration in first. My cure was to just grab the mount and bend it away from the tank about 1/2"

Also make sure your control arm and track bar bolts are tight while you're under there.
