No, I don't think the torque of the motor is great enough with the 4.7's to have that kind of effect. On my truck, the left one was the only one making noise and was visually more worn than the passenger side. I'm sure there are a lot of variables that go into how quickly and how severely they'll wear. There's nothing really in the steering or suspension geometry that I can think of that would cause an uneven wear like that. I mean, the only thing the sway bar does, really, is keep body roll down. So... Try replacing the links again AND the bushings on the frame and see what you come up with.
