I'm not seeing any labels, but that recessed part helps, thanks.

All your topless posts on FB have been exactly what it was modeled after.

So it's 4am, and for the second time in a month I just got back from the mandatory test drive after installing new parts. Car feels significantly better, I think I need to tweak the endlink lengths, kinda just did a quick and dirty job so I could take it for a drive. Anybody have any good methods for getting them set just right?

The sway bar should be parallel to the ground when the car is on a flat surface and all 4 wheels settled on the ground. IE you should adjust them WITHOUT jacking up the car.

Did those have issues fitting at all? Just curious cause a friend of mine had a heck of a time getting his front bar in. I don't remember why though.

The front bar is usually a pita because of the slip in brackets. There needs to be tension on the bushings so they are slightly oversized but in doing so, it always "unslips" a bit. Stupid stupid design.

Tony, do you have bigger sways at all? It would just bump you into the next level correct?

I'm running stock sways. I could run bigger, but they cost points and I'm maxed out for this class.
