ok, so i've got a new sway bar for butters[1"] and it looks like i will need to make a new hole for one side of the hanger bracket thingy , with the nut inside the frame for the old hole. is there any way to get a nut in there without cut'n up mr butters? :? :|

Maybe this would work for you? Energy suspension has new mounts with poly bushing for that size of bar. The ones without the grease nipple :D will fit the 510 mount bolt spacing with no modifications needed. Lordco has them for $20.


By the way is your car done yet :?: :P :)

Yes ,they have brackets {mounts} that will fit the 510 bolt spacing. Just measure your bar and bolt spacing so you know what to ask for. It comes as a kit = brackets and bushings {red or black}.

Have a look at this :arrow:

Non-Greasable Type---2 1/16 to 2 7/8 bolt spacing---- + your bar ____ in mm

Looks nice! I do have a question, a stupid question, because I just feel like asking one of those tonight.....so, why do folks spell PIC, oic?? just curious because I see it over on Ratsun all the time, is it just a thing that everyone does on purpose?? I never really asked so I'm curious...Thanks.

An inside "joke" from ratsun. Skib or someone misspelled pics as oics and they took it and ran like a methed out junkie. Just one of the many juvenile ratsun "jokes" that aren't really funny :P
