thread.
4.Please remember to leave at least 10mm of ball link thread in
the lock nut, you can check this by completely removing the ball
link and marking the thread. (REFER FIG 1)
5.Once the length is determined, hand tighten all lock nuts with
fingers. (REFER FIG 3)
Note : Studs can point in any direction to suit application.
6.Place the supplied washers over each stud prior to installation.
After installing one side check that the other link's studs line up
with the sway bar and control arm holes. If you find the studs won't
easily slide in then you now have the ability to fine tune the length
of the adjustable ball link to remove any unwanted sway bar pre
load.
7.Once both links are installed and there are no visible clearance
issues, then tighten all lock nuts with appropriate spanners.
8.Check all fittings after test drive and recheck after initial 100km.
