Default check that swaybar...

...just a friendly reminder to check those sway bar bolts for you guys that have done your own installation... particularly those at the top of the endlinks for the rear sway bar and make sure they are tight...
my WL sway bar & MRT endlinks were abit loose despite being set to factory torque settings & run for 6 months. I could have had a really bad day had I not looked at them the other day and noticed a loose nut.

Do you have nylon locking nuts? I just put some MRT's on my front swaybar and they came with nylon locknuts. I'm wondering if those will hold, or if I need to put a bit of threadlocker on them.

I did a swaybar check over the weekend, my kartboy endlinks were installed wrong! (whoops) So i fixed it quick (15 minutes) and now its all good

Do make sure to check every now and then though...
