Default Front End Rattle (Solved!) Sway Bar Shifted A Bit

My 07 developed a metallic rattle that sounded like a strut bearing or coil spring noise on the passenger front side when going over bumps.

A 'eureka' moment on mine is that I figured out that the sway bar can shift as much as about 1/2" left or right in the bushings.

Mine shifted all the way to the left, and it appears that the the sway bar taps against the cradle on the passenger side where it curves down. I reached under with a pry bar, shoved the bar to the other side, and the noise stopped.

I put a nylon zip tie between the sway bar bushing and the 'bump' in the sway bar, and it's still there six months later, and no rattle. I could see on the cradle/frame where the sway bar was touching.
