FYI just for reference,

Refer to my link below for an update with my sway bar experience.

In a nutshell, the large ss bands were not tight enough and it worked itself loose, I may need [and am in process] of fabbing some pads for the large red bushings. see link below for pics.

Thanks

I don't know if it makes a difference but I did cut the metal covering off the tube and I did use the good clamps like the picture I have around 10000 miles and they have not come loose
