First of all, I doubt its the bar being off centered or even the bushings. I'd check the sway bar end links that go bad after 60k or so and being lowered makes them wear faster. Replace those and see if the noise goes away. If it doesn't, check your strut bar upper mounts. Make sure the lock nut is super tight. Again, if you've changed your struts/ shocks and reused them or even not tightening them enough (most think they are but aren't) will make noise. If its neither of those then I'd check the bar being off centered, but unless you hit something crazy then I highly doubt the bars off centered. Good luck. Also mileage? Have you changed out any suspension things before? If so, what? More info will help!
