Looking at the photos of how my front sway bar currently sits does it look correct to everyone? Also do the end links need to be adjusted longer than the stock ones for a lowered car? When the bar was first installed the links were set same length as stock but immediately caused issues with the bar hitting the frame of the car when driving. Had them extended slightly which solved the problem but now a knocking noise has come back and obvious place to start is the sway bar.

Are those link arms rose jointed, if they are and you’ve done more than 500 miles then they are probably rattling/making a noise.

I fitted rose jointed adjustable front bars , I also think you need to lengthen them when the car is lowered.

Also I got knocking noises too, I took mine to be cross balanced too at a motorsports place , and the bloke said he did the drop bars as tight as he could but they still knocked. I took them off as it just makes the car feel like a shed. Back to the donkey years old OEM links and no knocking

Forgot to mention here that I got the problem sorted. Turns out both the links were slightly different lengths and the lock nuts did not have any Loctite applied to them so they kept coming loose. The end position of the bar is fine and is just how the Superpro bars are designed.
