Placement of the tabs on the housing isn't critical. You can put them wherever they need to be. You just wanna make sure they land directly under the arms. A good way to figure out if they should be on the front, top, or back of the housing is to just put them wherever they make the vertical link bars vertical. You don't really want the vertical links leaning to the front or back, try to get them perfectly vertical. Wherever they end up vertical is where you should put your tabs on the housing.

This topic seems to be coming up more and more, so I've moved this thread to the Suspension forum and made it a sticky. Post up your anti roll bar pics!

so how hard is it to install one and how makes the best one. I was thinking of a sway bar but this might be better yet.

Some class rules require stock suspension mounting points. Lee
