Question... I see the bracket has a zerk fitting. Yet the bar surface looks dry.

How long has it been installed?

Reason for asking is if that is a dry frictional surface without a bearing, it could have become grabby under there stressing out the bracket mounts, even if it has gussets. It coulda just been wayy due for some grease.

Please give our sales guys a call this morning. Lubing these parts is critical as well as checking for binding (make sure that the sway bar is tightened with the weight of the car on the tires, not at full droop). We don't make those straps in house; but that is the fist time I've seen that failure on these cars. If you feel you want an upgrade, we also sell an upgraded strap that we do make. It's a really nice piece. Ask our sales guys and they can get you sorted out. Sorry for the trouble you're having!

I need to change the title I am happy with my sways, it improved the handling. I think it was a fluke in the batch.

Either way I called this morning and John was on the receiving end and took care of the situation, he sent out for a replacement part

looks like it was a failure due to lack of maintenance. Pretty nice of them to help you out.

Glad Jon got you all taken care of! Hope you get it soon and get back on the road! If you have any follow on questions, feel free to PM me or call Mon-Fri.

Go to edit and then select "Go Advanced" at the bottom right corner of the grey dialog box. You can then change the title.
