    Very Nice Post,

    Ik like the swaybar you installed, looks pretty easy and straightforward to do. However should it not be somehow attached to the body of the car in the middle? At this point I don't see how it can actually work if it isn't.

    So far I like this forum a lot, it really goes all over the world.

    greetings from the Netherland

    Its not a "linkage" type bar that would require support to stay in place, in those pics you can see a plate that is welded to the bar, once the plate is bolted to the spring purch it can't move it can only twist.

    OK, I see what you mean. It is probable not as effective as a "linkage" type bar, but a lot more easier to install

    Im inclined to agree, It seems its works more as a spring tensioner than anything else. It would be fun to drive each and feel the difference.

    Does anyone know how to undo the rear strut bolt? I tried but it just spins the whole piece.
    Is there a certain way on how to do it?

    I'm guessing the rear strut itself is turning with it. You may need to clamp down the strut at the same time.

    This Mirage actually uses rear shock absorbers. However I'm assuming that you mean the rear shocks lower mounting bolts that you cant undo. Theyre going to be a nut and bolt fastening it so if you cant get just the nut pried off, then try using a wrench to hold the bolt in place and loosen the nut.

    question. Did all the nuts/washers/bolts get used per side. Ive managed to use 2 on each side. Did I install it wrong?
