Re: Before I drill...does this look right?
I'm wanting to install a rear sway bar also. Why did you have to move your shocks?
Mine is an ADCO; what brand is yours?
Since I haven't started yet, I don't have too many answers to your question. It does look like your sway bar ends are going downhill toward the front, but you are as short as you can go on the links. Is your car jacked up by the axle or by the frame? I would think if you jack it up by the axle, it would give you the same spring compression as if the car was resting on the ground. Then you could parallel the ends with something horizontal on your car...ie. subframe, rocker trim piece or subframe connector, even door bottom. I would also call the manufacturer to see how "parallel" it's supposed to be and why the links aren't shorter. Also, it seems logical that the wider the axle mounts (for the sway bar) are, the better.
Hope this helps a little,
