Over this side, an anti-roll bar is the thing that connects the two wishbones 
to stop the car rolling too much on corners.  It's not the thing that protects 
you if
the car falls over - that's a roll bar.

I think maybe non-brits know an antiroll bar by the name of "swaybar", 
reflecting their
more sedate driving habits perhaps ?

I think this problem may have come about because of the car being jacked up 
under the 
front of the chassis member, which may cause the antiroll bar to pull out 
At least I hope that's it, it may get expensive otherwise.
