I used locktite blue on the threads before install...helps keep the nuts on there good and tight....

Since these are adjustable...i measured with a steal ruler from the top of one joint the the bottom fo the other...then made sure the other side was identical...then you tighten the nuts down to prevent the joints (if thats what you call them) from loosening

thats a good starting point, but here is the best. Set the tire pressures, 5 gals of gas no junk in the car or trunk, flat floor (check with a level. The undo one end link )sway bar end will do. You must be able to slide the joint threaded stud into the bar without ANY stress ( preload) Now you are done, lock it down...
