    popped sway bar bushings

    I recently put the eibach sportlines on my car and i love the springs but right after i lowered i went out of some driveway ramps and i heard a couple pops and i thought maybe it was springs settling in and didnt think anything of it. well i pulled my car over the pit at my work and walked around under it to check things out. I have the suspension techniques swaybars and the bushings are popped on both ends and the hangar bolts are bent. Is there a reason i would need longer bolts with the lowering kit? car handles awesome btw got stock bilsteins int he rear and two new kyb struts in the front. the car is on rails until u start giving it some throttle

    very odd that happened. if anything, you would need shorter bolts. but, i have never come across this one just because the car is lowered. are you refering to the sway bar bushings or the end links?

    im referring to the end links. the litts round bushings on them. similar to bushings on skateboard trucks. and the bolts that they are on appear to be bent and the sway bar has no tension on it anymore
