    Installed my sway bar today and have a few concerns...
    1) the sway bar is touching the axle in two places and touching the rear diff cover. I dont think that is right... Went to a fabricator friend for help. We loosened, adjusted moved it away from axle n diff. But upon tightening it went back to touching in all 3 spots.

    2) Also tried to install a sway bar on a friends '13 tundra thats lifted 4". It wouldnt fit.

    Any knowledge would be great. Thank you in advance RB

    @Rbtrd this may sound like a dumb question... and i dont have a good answer for your question... but did you have to lift your truck at all to install the sway bar? or were you able to install it with all 4 on the ground? lol hope you get an answer to your question soon! cause ill prob run into the same issue =P

    You need that sticker! The gaudy red paint isn't enough to remind you it's a trd part!

    As far as how it makes the truck handle....i think its helped. I wish i would have put it on my last CM Tundra. The Pro has such better suspension and only put 800 miles on it before sway install kinda hard to tell.
