The sway bar will slide in the bushings, is that it?

No, the bar where it goes through the frame, it is like stuffed up to the curve on the drivers side and has some straight before the curve on passenger side.

You should be able to grab it and give it a good tug by hand back to the drivers side.

Agree with above. BL shouldn't have any effect on the suspension.

I didnt think it would either but thought perhaps pressure frm jacking up the body could have caused it to shift. I had my father pull on the bar while I rocked the jeep, so it would pop over even if their was slightly pressure on it from uneven ground. didnt budge. also pulled on it myself very hard. I think it may even out once I drive, it is driveable. but thats granted I get this motor mount lift done... lol.

"After doing some research, I found that this is in fact a common problem with many TJ owners and the best solution would be to upgrade the swaybar with a Currie Anit-Rock system. This sounded great to me all the way until I found that it costs about $300."

That made me LOL.

well, I will do something along that fashion if yanking it doesnt keep it in place. I still need to do about 1001 other things... anyone know if replacing the cross bolts on the engine mounts is okay to do, as long as I use grade 8? the threads on mine are like, horrible and I cant get the nut to thread back on completely.

That the anti sway bar has shifted a bit to the side is no big deal. Really. The axle, due to it's track bar, moves side to side so the anti sway bar will also shift side to side.

Okay. I wasnt overly worried, but I was just checking up. now If I know why the bracket that bolts to the engine block that my motor mount is connected too wont line up now, or why my engine and frame are lifting together even though one side is apart and the other side is connected but loose, that would explain alot. maybe I need to shift over to the other side of the bell housing.
