ok, so i figured out what a cv joint is and yes, my UUC sway bar rubs against the CV Joint after dropping on KWv2's. I believe it is a sway bar endlink problem where they are too long. I'm calling UUC tomorrow to see how short these endlinks are SUPPOSED to be.

So the UUC Sway bars didn't come with adjustable end-link rods?

Anyhow, after I got my TEIN coilovers installed, the stock swaybar end links were too long and kept hitting the lower control arm. So I finally got an adjustable end-link setup. I think the mounting points for the swaybar endlinks on the front struts on the TEINs are lower than on the stock struts, causing this issue.

Well, the UUC sway bars DID come with adjustable end-links, but for some reason, at their SHORTEST, they are the same length as the stock end-links. Therefore, they can only get LONGER than the stock end-links...

I think UUC just needs to send me some shorter end-links... weird, though, since they advertise that these adjustable end-links can work with any amount of drop... *shrug*
