On a related note, I was going through my car yesterday and I found this strange piece of metal around one of the front inner hinge pins so I decided to pop out the hinge pin bushings from the arms to discover one of them had cracked. Probably worth inspecting if you take any nasty tumbles. Fortunately I was able to race without issue, but I did notice that my droop on one side was way off and I suspect this was the root cause.

Serpent 903433 is a drop in aluminum replacement for the sway bar holders. I had two of the stock ones strip - the plastic is too small for a screw of that size. Tworks makes a fancier version. I'm using the Serpent part in my buggies.
