Default IPD rear anti sway bar

Looking for some help on the proper install of the rear anti-sway bar.



There is a bolt with a very thin top. Should this go behind the control arm and then through the anti sway bar. I don't see how it can because the ball joint is in the way. Is the back of the sway bar just supposed to sit against the bracket?

#1 Are we looking at a 240?

#2 are you talking about the carriage bolt that IPD gives you even though the stock one is long enough / works?

yes, its a 240,


The bolt provided by IPD is short and very thin at the top. I can't tell its its meant to slip in between the bracket or go behind the the control arm and through to the anti-way bar.

Read the instructions like 5 times, its not clear on whether it goes through the control arm or slides behind the bracket. I even tried IPDs forum, but no answers.

The bracket is there to hold the short bolt. It does not go through the control arm.
