Default 2005 F6 small problem?

Maybe its a problem maybe its not.

Dumb question or not...I figured I'd ask anyway.

I just picked up this 2005 F6 on Saturday. Yes, my 1st Cat coming off 2 Polaris sleds.

Got sitting on it and pushing it side to side it was making a clunking noise.
Not a loud one mind you, but You knew it was there.
It was coming from both sides. I took pics of where I'm 99% sure its coming from. It's where the square rod goes through and the 2 bolts hold it in.





1st does it, or is it supposed to clunk going back and forth?
2nd is there a bad bushing or something that goes bad here?
I did not try to tighten anything or take anything apart yet.
I just wanted some opinions before I go any farther.
If its supposed to make a small clunking sound, Then I'm fine. If its not....then I need to know what to do to get her fixed before the snow falls.

Thanks
Todd

Yeah, mine clunks, too. I wasn't going to worry too much about it, but if someone says there's a bushing in there to replace, I'm going to get right on it.

Thanks.

That's the sway bar, almost all of them will clunk. Not a lot to be concerned with!
