The SR bars are very frustrating to align properly. If you try to "force" the bar in, the thin plastic bushing will crack very easily. I've done these a few times. Some hint maybe not mentioned are: Tighten the bolts holding the brackets in the fender-wall with the bushing and bar in place to keep the relative spacing accurate. If you already have them in, then try the next step. Use a spare spacer (one that may of cracked ) and place the sway bar in at one end with the entire bar sticking out. This will give you a relative idea in which direction the mount is holding in. The bar should be close to being parallel with the other spacer directly across from it. Move it around and the generally direction should be there. If not, use the tremendous lever arm of the bar to persuade the mount in the direction needed for this parallelism. Keep doing this until you can slide the bar in both mounts with spacers. You will still need to do some taping in both direction to get this done. Helps to have another at the opposite side.

The good news is that once they are properly done, they need minimal maintenance and never make any noise. I usually remove them once a year, check for worn of cracked bushings and re-grease. A quality made item.
