Hey guys! I recently noticed a weird noise and jerking when i did sharp turns on my jeep. When i looked under the jeep, i realized my left swaybar nut came off of the top and caused the bolt itself to keep it in place while it rubbed agianst the frame. So i put a new nut and bolt in the left swaybar and thought my problems would be solved. WRONG. Now my right swaybar rubs agianst the frame!! The front stabalizer is actually shifting over until the swaybar rubs. Everytime i kick it back over, it shifts back after a couple minutes.
What do i need to do? It seems like if i could keep the stabalizer in one spot, i would be fine. It is only supposed to move up and down right? Not side to side? Do i need new bushing cushions for it? Could something else be bent?
Thank you for your help!

Yeah, that's more than a possibility. Funny though, my '97 is 13yrs old and still has the original ones without issue.
My 99 had the stock ones. Then I lifted it, got an alignment, then a few months later noticed my swaybar was rubbing too. Replaced the bushings and it stopped, besides new bushings were cheaper than an alignment...at least in my town lol.

Its funny i just made the same thread yesterday. Im not sure about the alignment thou cause all the sway bars i heard about pull in the same direction. Which makes me think it creeps back to one side from the motor torque and body roll. But i could be wrong im going to clamp it on the inside like the pic here. New bushings would work to but i think i will feel better knowing that its locked in place.
