swaybar question

Should there be any left right swaybar movement if you grab and pull it? Mine shifts left and right so I did the swaybar fix with the two metal O rings, but I'm starting to think that a little movement is natural. I dunno, need some serious experienced opinions

No movement is better. Your bushings must be really worn for that to happen, the fix you did should buy you some time. I'd look into replacing the bushings on the frame mounts. Daystar makes good replacements.

Make sure that the axle is centered and then replace the bushings... That should stop the lateral movement in the swaybar. I replaced the stock set with Energy Suspension Bushings. They are greasable and I have had no more movement on mine... They were less than $20
