Icon4 HELP!! - Swaybar

im in the middle of installing my bII bar. ive got the endlinks on and now im trying to connect the bar to the links, but the passenger side of the bar lines up to the hole, and the drivers side doesnt line up.

is the bar is supposed to mount INSIDE the endlinks? because if i try that on the drivers side, the gas tank is in the way and it forces it to be on the outside of the link,while the passenger side in on the inside

it does.. but i think it has an issue that i havent givent attention to from when that honda hit me. since that accident it pulls to the right pretty bad. like if i let go of the wheel ill be in the next lane totally within 5 seconds.. not good lol.

and what i meant by one for the front was a 98+ 4x4 bar (thicker than my stock one)
