Strut Rubbing Sway Bar

Had front struts replaced. Now squeak and rub sway bar. Is there a sway bar relocation kit? Is there a fix?

I'm thinking the sway bar got moved, did they try pulling it to one side or the other? There are sway bar relocation kits. swayaway, icon, and toy tec, etc. sell them

Yeah like the others said before it should not rub with stock suspention on. They did something wrong.

Is it possible to put them on "backwards" ie passenger on driver side and that cause the situation?


But for what its worth here is the link for the icon relocation bracket for the sway bar

I don't think backwards would work. I will have to get relocation kit.
