Help... SAWs rubbing on sway bar!

hey gang... here's my dilemma. i just had SAWs coilovers installed. i noticed some squeaking so i looked underneath and on the driver's side (passenger side is fine), i found that the coil is butted right up against the sway bar. so i put some grease and that fixed the problem, no more squeaking.

but i figure the grease will rub away eventually, so i need a permanent fix. i'm thinking i need new sway bar end links.

anyone have any recommendations where i can get these?

oh, i have a 2009 TRD Sport 4x4 DC LB.

thanks all!
jason

hopefully this will resolve the issue.

bajamoon, i don't think removing the swaybar is a good idea, right? doesn't that detract from handling performance?

Some people like the softer feel. I have a scion tC in my drive way too...and that thing feels like it's on rails compared to the truck...and I still want to install a strut tower bar in front, strut braces in back, and an upgraded sway bar kit. I REALLY like stick to the road.

It's a personal choice...I like them...but it's all about what you are comfortable with I guess...

the relocater kit did not help mine at all, it would still rub the coilover.

I had this same problem with Sway a Ways rubbing the sway bar last summer when I installed them on my 2008. Everyone I talked to at Sway a Way acted like they never heard of the problem - yea right. I see they haven't redesigned their shock to eliminate the problem.

I fixed the problem by sending the Sway a Ways back and installing a set of 2.5" Icons. Problem solved.
