Default Installed rear sway bar-Thoughts

Got my rear bar installed this afternoon. I found some 3/8" speed nuts at Autozone and they worked perfectly. We also found if you bend up the lip on the axle where the slot is it will allow the bushing bracket to swing up easier and the bolt will start easily.

We also didn't take the rear wheels off. We were able to put the bolt through the swaybar end link and then swing it up and start the bolt. Then used a ratcheting wrench to tighten them on up.

Hope this helps somebody. Also to add, I got the swaybar and all hardware at the junkyard for $25.

A pretty big difference. I was pretty surprised just how much a difference it made.

Interesting. I'll have to look into it once I pick out wheels and tires.
