Addco Rear sway installed

Hi Everyone!

I had the Rear Addco sway bar installed a few months ago. First, the handling has greatly improved! The dreaded "butt wiggle" is gone!

Has anyone had issue with a clunking noise/rattle after the sway bar installation?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Chad

Re: Addco Rear sway installed

The clunk is gone!!!! A dollar in washers took care of the problem! I had the dealer install the sway, and I did not realize they did not add the washers. oh well, no clunk now.

Re: Addco Rear sway installed

Mine clunks like crazy, started about a year a go. Drives me crazy...

I'm going to change to the eibach bars anyway... I fitted the washers during the install but only lasted about a year before it clunked, I'm sure its the bushes that need re-greased in my case.
