Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. Is there any signs of strut leakage around the shaft? Ask the mech to check the bushings that hold those sway bars to the frame they tend to wear out and have play in them as well.

Here is a pic of those bushings to check.
