Plastic Bar Links

Post by Cream 280SE » Sat 14 Apr, 2018 7:27 pm

Hello all!

Ok, I noticed that the original metal bar links that attached from the rear sway bar to behind the rear wheel brake area where just swaying in mid air.

I purchased a new set which are nylon or plastic.

Now my problem is.... the original steel ones were attached by a screw behind the rear brake area, so I could unsrew it as the original was just so buggered, and the top one was attached using a nut.

Now the new ones have a nut for both the top and the bottom, so how do I attach this bloody thing?

I don’t even think I’m making sense here!!

Thanks

Daz
