Sway bar link bent?

Both sway bar link ends look bent to me. Just wondering if they are or is they supposes to look like this? If they are bent, what could make both if them to be bent?

Do you have a lift. Also the links have a ball and socket joint on top

Hard to tell if it's bent in this pic, but the spherical joint has a lot of angle the way it's sitting. You need longer sway bar links. The horizontal section (the ends) of the sway bar should be pointed up 10 degrees or so.

Longer links or a new swaybar system.

Im pretty sure its all stock (no lift). In the picture it's up on a lift so maybe thats why they look like that?

so if it's on a lift, with the axle & sway bar hanging at full droop, why do you think the sway bar link is bent? put the jeep back on it's feet and then take another look.

Oh, that explains a lot.

Looked at it on the ground today. I didnt realize the top of them rotate. I am used to straight links. Thanks for the help!
