If you're a DIY kinda guy, it's really easy to do. A repair shop would charge too much, IMHO

Make your way up to Lynchburg VA and I'll do the CHF for you for free. Takes about 30 min complete.

There are no new parts required. You just need to remove the 2 bolts from the front sway bar front holes and re-position them to the back hole. They won't look like they line up properly but, with a little grunting, or a small jack, you'll be able to get them in.
On the rear sway bar you'll remove the bolts and swing the shackle around and reinsert the bolts.
There is another earlier post titled "cheap handling fix" that has some pictures.
Good luck!!

You can do it for free however I suggest you get the helwig adjustable links for the front so you don't have clunking and premature bushing failure. It's still cheap with the links. You can search my posts for pics and part numbers.

FYI, Your chassis is Ford. Model number is irrelevant when you are trying to find chassis parts.

I got the Helwig adjustable links but when I went to remove the top bolt that is in the frame (not the bolt that attaches to the swaybar) from the OE links on the passenger side, before the bolt backed all the way out, it hit what looks like the AC compressor. i could not remove the bolt. I hate to think I have to remove the compressor just to remove/replace that bolt to mount the Helwig link on that side.

Cut the bolt off and use one a little shorter for the reinstall.

Yea, with a good quality hack saw blade and a little time just cut the bolt off, then replace with a new grade 8 and nylon locking nut.
