Just go over the suspension really well and see if you can see any wore out parts and replace them.

didnt think sway bar.....

latest work= new shocks

this will sound dumb but best way to check? jack up and start wiggling and pulling?

into the dealer last night- was told (shown) the factory trac bar has a bend to it and the adj one is straight hence the contact. he told me to cut or grind the effected area off the bracket to clearance it.......
