XI SWAY Setup

Hey Guys,

I have been having issues with my stock suspension setup where the front sway stabilizer links keep becoming loose.

I have been to three different shops where they tightened the links and kept telling me there is no problem. However, the body roll is atrocious a this point and when corning I feel like the car is going to slip.

Has any one ever experienced this before?

Do you recommend upgrading the links and sways?

Cheers,

Not lowered, now stock suspension, had it lowered over the summer. Will check sway bar bushings. Also noticed my turning radius got worse but I am not sure what contributes to that problem?

Garage List
The only front sway bar for the xi is the UUC one but they've been back ordered for months, supposedly due to waiting for new bushings to be made. I tried ordering them and got the runaround until canceling my order. So right now the only available sway bars are for the rear, and installing one requires lowering the rear subframe which is a lot of labor if you have a shop do it.

I would suggest getting fresh end links for the front sway bar. You can go with OE style replacements if you aren't planning on lowering the car.
