    I found that i have broken my front sway bar and have taken it of to stop the rattle while i find a new one.

    My problem is that my bus now seems to sit lower on the driver side, both at the front and back?

    Anyone shed some light on why this may be happening?

    Cheers

    torsions have sagged due to age and weight, the sway bar was helping keep the bus level .

    front rhs is worn, when ever the vehicle is moved, theres always a great lump sat on the drivers seat! this lump also causes sag in the rear as well, but not quite as much. unless the van was used by builders etc, but you would have noticed the sag before the swat bar broke!
