Control FX Tie Bar Installation - Hellwig Model

Skill Level Step-By-Step Instructions
  1. Raise the car securely to access the rear axle area.

  2. Remove the 9/16" bolt that secures the rubber bushing and the sway bar to the mounting plate. 
  3. Insert the new bolt (provided) through the bracket.
  4. Adjust the end links equally on both sides such that the overall length is equal to the distance between the attachment bolts.  Slide the end links onto the new bolt and tighten.
  5. Tighten the tie bar by hand by turning it counter-clockwise until it is snug.
  6. Snug the jam nuts on each end of the tie bar by hand.
  7. Using a wrench, fully tighten the jam nuts so that the tie bar can no longer be turned by hand (as in step 5).
