So i just put on my sp-2 last week, everything was fine until i put my golf clubs in the back. I have the comptech rear sway, and my exhaust is hittin it whenever i make a sharp turn. I realigned my sway so the endlinks are straight up and it still hits. All of this started when i put a little weight in the trunk. any ideas? Help? Please! I cant get a closeup with my cam, but here are a few pics

I've heard some people use exhuast wrap to pad the area thats rubbing. doesnt fix the problem really but dulls the clunk or grinding noise....
I've been looking into a Rear Sway myself, it seems they all have issues clearing the Greddy exhausts :-/

Tried that

Didnt work after 2 weeks when it rubbed away...

My Greddy hits my sway bar too...

and u have end links and that didnt fix the problem? i have endlinks (not installed)

good thing i didnt waste my time with those...

Are they at the shortest adjustment (endlinks)?

No i dont have the adjustable endlinks, in the installation instructions for the sway bar kit to align your endlinks so that they are vertical (straight up and down)
I've done that with the car on jackstands, and settled on the ground, both worked for a lil bit but it came back. I think that my sway is just moving side to side a little bit :ugh:

no but you have a clean ass car bro sike j/p wrap the sway with heat wrap only way the noise will go away happens with most greddy exhausts
It works for 2-3 Weeks

then you gotta re-wrap

Another trick is purchasing Thick coolant hose

Cutting it in half (long ways)

and wrapping around sway bar....that should last a little longer...
