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.

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

yeah i got it off and from there the installation took no more than a half hour. but damn, getting those things off was a bitch....well worth the trouble tho, this thing rocks when u whip it through the turns

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
