Sounds like you are going to have to get out the drill and drill the broken bolts out. I dont see another solution if the heads snapped off.

You can goto the local autoparts store and ask for a bit called an "Easy Out" this will be your best friend if you have a drill that haas reverse on it. It works even if you dont have reverse but you have to crank it by hand.

I had the same thing happen to me. you should be able to tap them out with a nailset or pointy chisel if you have one.

Can you get the stock sway bar off? These bolts break all the time so we provide new mounting hardware with our sway bars. Did you receive new mounting bolts?

Wait a minute....I didn't get new hardware with my MP swaybar (which arrived about a week and a half ago) and all 4 of my stock bolts snapped....what gives?

(one of the mounting tabs on the swaybar also had some middleschool-level welds on it....not sure how I feel about that

Glad to hear you got it all set and installed. Is your car lowered also? Just curious if it makes more difference on a lowered car Vs. a stock height car?

my car is lowered 1.4" with intrax and i feel like they are settling even lower, with the springs, wide tires (on 8" rims) and the rear sway i feel a huge difference from stock. i cant tell if the sway would be different on stock ride height because it was lowered before the rear sway. nonetheless i feel a difference with the mp sway mostly when im driving it hard through the twisties

Well with the good price they are offering them at I will just have to pick one up myself and try it out before I lower my car.
