Installed New Sway Bar - Need Help!
Hey all! I am new to this forum, I have read plenty of posts on here and gotten some great info.. Now I've got a question!
I have a 2000 V6 Stang, and I just replaced my front sway bar with a beefier Eibach bar (from the Anti-Roll kit).
To paint a quick picture, the bar is held to the frame by a bushing within a U-shaped bracket, which is held by two bolts per side. They are carriage bolts with a button head that lies in a clip in the frame tubing. I need help finding a new clip, because I broke one of them when removing one of the four bolts! I have looked everywhere, and can't find a hardware kit or anything that includes this little part... From what I've read, the stealership has determined this part "obsolete", and no longer carries it either.
Has anyone got an idea as to where I might find a new clip? As of right now, one of the brackets is not fully secured since I cannot tighten one bolt. If the clip is a lost cause, maybe an idea or two for another way to get it torqued properly?
Thanks in advance for help!
