The two on the right are the rear swaybar endlink bolts. (left is a new bolt) The passenger side was bent slightly, but the driver side was horrible (middle). The picture doesn't do it justice. Why the heck didn't they use grade 8 bolts to start with? I thought these things were supposed to be able to handle a beating. Blame Canada I guess.

yeah, thats sad...... theres other forces then just up and down on those bolts...... im a big fan of the dogbone style end links on swaybars. they can move to absorb horizontal forces so they dont bend. i always wonder if the old school swaybars cause any binding the way they work. either way, i agree with you about the stronger bolts.
