Symptom of Pre-loaded Rear Sway?
I am thinking my rear sway is being pre-loaded on my driver's side. After installing the MM rear adjustable end-links I've noticed that whenever I hit a decent sized bump with the driver's side rear that the whole back end gives a noticable "shimmy". If I try to replicate the issue by hitting a bump with the passenger's side the shimmy is there but no where near as noticable as the driver's side. Does this sound like a sway pre-load issue or something else?
I will admit that I may not have the end-links at the same length. It was getting late and after spending almost two hours trying to get the stock end-link off (siezed bolt and rounded off stud) I was tired of messing with the thing and just wanted to be done.
If it is really pre-loaded what would be the best way to make sure the bar is neutral? Just measure and equalize the end-link lengths or disconnect them and adjust while the car is on the wheels but raised with ramps?
