I noticed the other day that there is a small gap between the bottom of my sway bar, where it rests on the rubber part of the link arm. I don't know if the nut has come loose or the inside of the sway bar link has broken. I'm not too familiar with these parts. If I rock my Jeep side to side, I get a kind of pop sound. When doing so, I noticed the sway bar is moving up and down the bolt thread of the link arm. It's not much movement, but when I really rock the jeep back and forth more than a few inches in one direction, it will cause the movement and then the noise.
Has something broke or more likely come out of adjustment? Also, the sway bar doesn't sit flat on top of the link arm. It seems to be angled forward some, and is causing the rubber top on to of the link arm to look distorted. I have an 03 Rubicon with factory suspension. The only change was the Garmin roof rack. The rear mounts for the rack mount between the body and the frame in the rear. The mount plate was maybe a 1/4" thick at most. I don't know if this may have caused anything to change up front. It's been there for a while, and this sway bar issue is recent.
Finally, the noise doesnt happen when pushing up and down of the suspension. So I don't think it's the shocks or a ball mount. It's rides fine and handles ok except when going over speed bumps that's causes the body to roll. So, any ideas? I want to do the quick disconnects when it's get warmer, so if it just needs adjustment, like tightening the nut on top of the link arm, until then that would be cool. Otherwise, I will just make the upgrade if something is busted. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for any help.
