Thanks khammack you nailed it. I inspected the shock mounts and didn't see anything that would justify the noise I was hearing so I kept looking and found that 1 end of my sway bar wasn't even connected! Somehow it slipped out of the bushing so it's just floating and colliding with other suspension components whenever I hit a bump. In the repair manual it suggests removing the sway bar and bench mounting the new bushing/mount(s) then reinstalling the assembly. The old bushing is still there but not connected so I'm torn between reinstalling it or going new. I know what I should do but these jobs always end up being harder to do then you thought. Has anyone performed this procedure?
