    Sway bar rubbing on coolant pipe

    Is this normal? Is there some sort of an adjustment I can make to keep these from touching? 8376EE0C-4C22-421A-A21E-8CD42AD65359.jpg4791E693-482A-49D7-8D4B-143C96C938B3.jpg

    Not normal. Did you just install the sway bar? Is it upside down?

    You can shorten the hose so the pipe moves forward.

    You can just loosen the clamps and push the pipe in more.

    It was like this when I got it. I have removed the sway bar and reinstalled it with poly bushings. I will slide the pipe in more and see if that fixes it. Thanks!
