unfortunately it does not come with sway bars for the front or rear. But the front bars for the KC fit no issue there. The KC rear sway bars fit but need to be trimmed about 4-5mm from the ends. I also use Mi6 ball joint and socket.

I hope this helps.

How long have you had the LD? Schumacher absolutely will help resolve this problem your having. If they dont follow through, just either PM me or email me directly to [email protected] and also where are you located?
What position are you running the diff? Slipper clutch, slipper eliminator, stock or mod(what turn) , and surface.

@lexusbest:
i assume you have one of the pre-production Kits and therefore a faulty transmission case wit a lot of play for the Diff.This will most likely be your problem.
I raced only one race with my PP-LD on wet astro so I haven't had that problem..
