Changing Sway bar links
When changing sway-bar links,
1. Should both sides be done, even if only one side appears to need repair
2. Should nuts be tightened with vehicle weight on the wheels.
I did one side today and tightened the sway bar nuts with the wheel off and suspension hanging. However, sway-bar geometry and range of motion does not emulate control arm motion (control-arms need pre-loading before tightening as we know) and handling is definitely a bit wonky.
I figured i would check before I do other side.
Thanks in advance.
