Does sound like the bar is not symmetrical any more, not easy to bend & pretty well protected but someone may have jacked wrong/jack slipped and jammed it at sometime in it's life. The Poly Bushings would let it "walk" more than the stock rubber ones (less sticktion) - look close for straightness across the middle/any marks from damage...
I'm guessing it "walks" to one side, then interferes at extreme suspension travel...
Unless the end links were the wrong length there should be no interference at any point in the suspension travel - lowering of your type shouldn't take it out of stock travel range.
