No, I jacked up my van one side at a time. I'm pretty sure it's not the strut as I could visibly see the sway bar bend up and it looked like it was in a different position than the driver's side, plus there's the reamed-out sway bar bushing on the passenger side too that I painstakingly put in last summer.
I've done the bounce test on the struts, and they seem to bounce once and rest like they should, no noticeable binding in the them, although they do look tired, and I will need to change them soon. I can't afford to throw parts at it and get the diagnosis wrong, let alone the time allotment for it to get worked on, as I have two kids and work full time.
I know that it's rare but is it totally unheard of to have a bent sway bar? That link will probably wear out fast, they're $125 a piece here on Saltspring island, I ordered two online for $18 each and they took almost two weeks to get here, so it's hard for this home mechanic.
