That was when I came home from work and took it out of the box. Don't worry, when I installed it I was in the 5 year old s**t and jeans :)

It comes with one lot of bushes where the bar mounts to the underside of the chassis. I replaced the others at the base of the vertical rod that runs up from the base of the shock (dunno what it's called) when I fitted the new springs, shocks and camber kit around 18 months back

I put a 30mm swaybar on the front of my xf Ghia. Come down thru the Adelaide hills on the old road (few years ago now) was the best drive ever. But was scary on roundabouts cos there was no body roll at all. The first indication of pushing too hard was the rear snapping around and looking back where ya came from! :lol:

It means that there is no longer any body roll to warn you that you are on the edge of losing control
