Is this a suspension problem or an engine sputtering and gagging problem, if its the later its the famous 92 fuel strainer problem, when coasting or pushing gas around a right corner do you almost run out of gas and have your engine sputter? If so it might be your fuel strainer, me and many others have experienced this problem. If not then i dont know a darn thing about suspension and cant help ya.

That bar is the strut tower brace. The anti-sway bar (or sway bar as it'* commonly called) is under the car... It'* a tubular bar that'* straight in the middle and angled on both ends, and connects to some bolts with rubber bushings right next to your wheels.

Does your car have traction control? If so turn off the traction control and see if that makes any difference. Also, do you feel shaking in the steering wheel, the driver'* seat, or both? -Mike

No traction control....

The shaking is in the whole car. The steering column and drivers seat are both shaking....along with everything else

From my limited experience, those symptoms don't sound like a sway bar problem. One of my sway bar endlinks was sheared off and the other one was junk, and the only symptom I had was a clunk when I went over uneven ground or turned a certain way. Plus, if you had all that other steering and suspension work done they probably would have seen a bad endlink while they were under there. I could be wrong, but I doubt it'* the sway bar. Bad news is I don't know enough about it to point you in any other direction! We'll see if a gearhead pops in here.
