you can see when the suspension is loaded that the bar is very close to the stamped sheetmetal in the inner fender on the right side and there is a lot more clearance on the left side. you can reposition the bar, but it always works its way back over to the left... it completely boggles my mind... if I had a little more $$ laying around I would just buy a new bar and endlinks. My Nissan master tech seems to think that maybe the bar is distorted...its never been in an accident or had any off road excursions so I really dont see that as being a possibility. It has been an ongoing thing for about the past 10k and I was hoping replacing the sway bar bushings would resolve it, but it hasn't...
