Hit a huge hole going too fast, steering has been a little off. The pic is of both sway bar links. The right one looks good, the left looks a little torqued. Is this normal or did I bend the left one?
Thanks

Those links, if I'm not mistaken, are designed to to move a bit since they are connected to the LCA's, though it does look like the bar itself moved/shifted from one side to the other a bit. Not sure if that would cause any "off" sensations in steering though. Check to make sure your bar is sitting centered in the bushings/brackets.

Just get rid of your sway bar all together. More travel off-road, better ride on-road, its a win-win.

Is all this true? Wouldn't the front end roll more in the corners while on the street?
My sway bar moves side to side as I drive, I can see the lines of grease as it moves left to right.

I have a slide-in camper, I don't think that would be a good idea.

Yes, it will roll more and depending on what suspension you have in there, it can be a lot more. I have Radflos with stiff springs, removed my sway bar a few months ago, and since then my SLIP light goes off like crazy on faster corners due to body roll. My sway bar is going back on this weekend.

I have stock suspension, so I think I'll stick with keeping it attached
