Just got absolutely wrekt by the install kit on the swayloc.

Took me about 30 minutes to get this stupid little stud out after installing on driver side.

I was fighting the stud real hard to even get a nut on it, so I’m thinking something wasn’t right out of the box.

The supplied hardware wouldn’t go on without an absolute fight. I should have known better

Going to hardware store to get some different options and continue with install.

Looks like there was not enough threads engaged. I think I had to use a longer bolt to pull it in to where I could get the stud threaded. You may of needed to run a tap in to clean up the threads also.

Yep. I used an entirely different stud the rest of install and it went 100x better. For whatever reason, the one included in the box wasn’t quite right

Ended up throwing 2 small washers on each steering stop to prevent rubbing. I’ll revisit once I’ve installed the new springs/35s
