An anti-sway bar (aka anti-roll) typically has 2 frame/body side supports, spaced quite aways apart. I’m going to go out on a limb and say always, as I have been involved in the design of such systems for full scale cars for a long time.

after you run it through a wash cycle in the dishwasher, you can hang it here on a coat hanger.
