If you've got a nice flat surface, do this:

Put the bar down on the surface. Put one finger in the middle, and another finger on one end. Then press the other end gently to see if there's play between it and the board. Bend the bar to relieve the play. Repeat for both ends, and then flip the bar over and check again.

That's not a great description, but hopefully you can figure out what I mean. Also, holding the bar up and looking at it with the two ends aligned:

eyes) -> \___/

You can sometimes see something out of alignment on one of the outer bends.

Hey guys.

Here's my solution for adjustable swaybar links! It's an HPI part. There's 2 versions around. the dull full plastic one (pretty cheap) and the shown posh purple version I got :-)

When you use it, you need to make sure it's slopfree. It's quite hard to get them slopfree as you have to compress them a bit to get them smaller, but once slopfree, the swaybar works much much better and the influence on the cars performance is bigger than you would imagine.

That's the unfortunate thing about having bottom mounted swaybars with the links far in, everything needs to be spot on to make it work properly
