Just want to remind everyone to reinforce the rear sway bar mounting brackets at the trailing arm....and at the FRAME! I had reinforced the trailing arm mounts but NOT the frame mounts and they are failing...should have done it right the first time. ghead ghead

Thanks for the heads-up. Was it a Suspension Techniques sway bar? I just installed mine about a month ago and only reinforced at the trailing arm. Could you send me photos of what you have done with your frame reinforcement. or a description if you have not yet done it.

The front attachment on my ST sway bar did not go exactly like the instructions. Did you do any reinforcement up front as well?

Suspention Tech...Yes. I still need to fix the rears. Noticed it on Sunday when I wes installing a new Cat and brakes which took most of the day. I will probably make strap like brackets and weld them over the mounting tabs on the frame. After seeing the damage I inspected the fronts and they look good with no signs of fatigue.


happy
