I've been helping TMC with his mods and I wanted to add some more info. The pics posted are after driving for some time. When we set it up the second time, the sway bar was pointing down. I think when you go over a bump and unload the rear suspension, the sway bar is able to go past the center line and end up in the position shown.
So its happening after you've driven it, when I first installed it the fact that it was shorter than stock threw me off at first but I have never had a problem with it kicking back like that

Is there anyway you can take a pick of the sway bar at the hump that goes over the gear housing? We would be able to see at what angle it is at to see if we are not rotating the sway bar forward enough?
A few questions:
What springs do you have?
If you have aftermarket springs have you modified the bumpstops?
I have eibachs and did a custom mod to my bumpstops, Im thinking that if you are stock the taller ride height is keeping that connection between the sway bar and the endlink straighter than mine and is allowing it to kick back under certain bumps. Does it happen on both sides or just one?
And as a side note I like the improvements overall with what I have done to suspension, Addco sway bar included
