ok thank you for that, what would the recommendations be for an upgrade on these? there around 11 inches in length. also this pic i just provided i noticed that there is about an inch and a half or so of play left to right which was causing the passenger side link to rub/knock against the frame you can see the play right on the bar near the bushings. i assume if i replace the bushings that should take care of this? i'm getting a slight wobble in the wheel around 40mph i assume it's coming from this mess of worn out parts.

Depends on usage and budget. Many people will scream anti-rock. If budget allows and you wheel the Jeep then I agree. If street queen with low budget get some JKS extended links. As for the sideways shifting, no big deal. A simple pipe or hose clamp on the inside will keep that from happening. The bushings on the bar are fine.

Could the links have been on wrong to cause such a shift in the bar? The drivers side was perfect, no frame kissing at all. It was all on the passengerside. It seems there was a ton of slop on that side? The links have a little bend in them which i assume go outward to open that bar up and push it away from the frame. (Bear with me this is my first jeep and im hellbent in fixing this thing and learning as i go, i really appreciate the help!!)

That is a very well known issue with the stock bar. It just happens. Nothing is wrong or anythign like that.

The reason the bar is shifting side to side is due to tire coming in contact with it when turning...

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

Well i can say without a doubt i have zero tire rub now. Maybe when the po had it it use to before the lift but i have a ton of space when the wheel is hard over. I am going ti try the hose clamp idea. That seems like a logical fix to stop it from moving. What about bump stops? Anything that could mount to the frame to keep it from rubbing?

What's your backspacing on your rims? Are they stock or aftermarket? Do you have spacers?

they are aftermarket rims (i do not know what brand) no spacers. i didn't see any rub on the swaybar at all. i found this tho, http://www.4x4xplor.com/swaybar-fix.html seems like an easy fix. maybe this will stop the damn clunk i get every now and then from the front end.

Many have used that to fix your issue.

Check at any bearing supply warehouse near you to find them, they're called double split shaft collars...

couldn't help but notice you have a decent amount of oil on the trac bar Tie rod end at the frame. I suspect you have something else causing your shimmy that is in turn creating the sway bar shift and thus the clunk. Time to do a dry steering test.
