Default Keep failing sway bar links, bent sway bar?

I got over 280K miles out of the original sway bar links and have replaced them twice now in the last 20K miles. The first set was a cheap set off ebay that only lasted a few weeks. The second set were MOOG and they are clunking now with significant play in the joint.

When I changed them out last, I noticed that the main bar did not set evenly on the links. (Sitting on level ground with all tires at even pressure). The Passenger side made contact first and there was almost 1/2" of a gap still on the drivers side. I travel some rough roads but I find it hard to believe a pothole could bend the sway bar. Is this standard preload or is my sway bar bent?

Anyone else have any insight on this?
