Hmmm....take a real close look at your track bar and it's bushings and bracket then. That's what's responsible for the left/right centering of the axle. Any creaks or pops while turning? That's a common symptom of a cracked bracket or bad bushing there. If everything looks good I suppose it's possible it was replaced with a shorter one from a crap brand or something. Kind of like Moog's is actually a little too long.

Also double check your eyeball with a measuring tape. Distance from the inside of the rim to the frame if nothing else, but there are some better options if you feel like searching.

Not critical. A well adjusted steering setup doesn't actually NEED a stabilizer. It's just there to cover up wear and provide a little wobble control when maintenance is let go.
