Once the chassis mounts are welded, remove the installation plates, which aren't used when the bar is installed. They're replaced with the spherical rod ends and hardware installed here. Assemble and install these per MM's instructions using the appropriate hardware. Reinstall the rear springs, shocks, and wheels. Here, the ends are attached to the forward holes in the chassis mount which is the full soft setting. Increase stiffness if necessary after testdriving the car. With the car's weight on its wheels (either on the ground, on ramps, or on a ramp hoist), check the alignment of the rod-end assemblies. To avoid binding, they should be vertical when viewed from the rear of the car. If adjustment is needed, it can be done by moving the bar's sideways location by resetting the shaft collars. The bar's overall width can also be adjusted by sliding the sway bar arms on the bar's splines. If their required width is beyond the range of adjustment allowed by the splines, use more washers on the rod-end mounting bolts.
