The sway bar has the label facing down when it’* installed, I don’t think it would go any other way. As far as the bolts, they are as tight as they will go. When I replaced them originally the, left side was tightened to the point the threads were stripped. Whatever is going on with that car was apparently bending the tie rod when the previous owner had it, and probably before she bought it. I took it to work yesterday and I felt the wheel jerk when I was turning around. As far as driving it was fine until I did a 90 degree turn, it felt like it was grabbing. I’m guessing that was the tie rod/sway bar causing that. I don’t know what else to check.
If I didn’t have so much into the car at this point I would get rid of it. I spent close to $1000 on new suspension, tires, brakes, and some other parts. It still has a bunch of probable electrical problems I haven’t had time to look at yet. The AC isn’t engaging, cruise sometimes functions, ABS is intermittent, air bag light is on, and the brake lines are very rusty. I don’t mind fixing it but if I can’t solve the suspension problem I don’t want to dig into the rest.
