Could someone please send me a picture of how the connection links are installed? Does the swaybar go on the inside of the ‘fat’ end of the control link? (Oh, sorry... big boned)

see pic - is that setup ok? Notice the, ahem, rotund part at the bottom, separating the sway bar from the control link... and does it matter which way the bolts go?? I have both bolts on the outside wheel side of the connection...

Is this correct?

I believe yes. That extension is to compensate the gap with the upper part.

You tightened everything up with car on its own weight?

That’s not good? Do I need to put both wheels up on blocks to do it right?

I hand tight those bolts, drive up on ramps and tighten them getting under the car.

I do the same with the control arms.

I didn’t have ramps. The wheels were on the ground and my laziness paid off as I squz (past tense of squeeze in the east coast of Canada) under and tightened them.

You should be good with the wheels on the ground. I don't think I could even get to them like that, but my car is a bit lower than stock.
