Im no expert but it looks normal to me. Track bars have bushings that should allow it to move a little.

looks more to me like the camera is mounted to the body/frame/bumper and when you move your steering, the push from the draglink always causes some suspension movement/body shift and the camera is going along for the ride

I think your axle is sitting still and the body/suspension is moving like it should, just the camera is moving with the body so it looks like the other way around

edit: actually after watching the 2nd video full screen, it looks like there might be a little play in the frame side trackbar/mount

No the camera was not attached to the Jeep

I thought I saw a little movement on the upper track bar mount as well. Stock bushings are going to give a little but I'm not sure what's normal.

Those aren't stock bushings. Its the Currie bar. Poly on the frame end and johnny on the axle.

Yep, I see movement on the frame end too. Retorque the bolt and check the movement again, if no change then I would say the bush is failing - def does not look like the stiffness I would expect of a poly bush. Prime candidate for the onset of DW..

The trackbar is torqued to 130, in fact the bolt does not even move when I put a torque wrench on it. I will pull the trackbar and take a look today but couldn't what you are seeing be the bar flexing? If you watch the grease nipple on the poly bushing in relation to the track bar frame mount there is no movement there..

Well it must be normal. Pulled the trackbar and there is almost ZERO play in the holes. I mean, less than a millimeter and maybe even less than that. I can barely tell.

The johnny joint side is solid and here are pics of the poly bushings, no tears and the sleeve is tight in the bushings..
