These should be fitted into the matching notches on each end of the Anti-Roll Bar:
Secure this Anchor Tube into place from the other side with one (1) BP screw:
In the same way, secure the second Anti-Roll Bar Anchor Tube to the opposite end of the Rear Anti-Roll Bar using one (1) more BP screw:
Retrieve your Chassis from the previous stage and turn it upside down. Fit the Anti-Roll Bar to this matching location on the rear Chassis.
The ‘cross bar’ of the Anti-Roll Bar should rest in these recesses of the Rear Axle, as shown:
At the same time, the Anchor Tubes should be fitted into these matching posts on either side:
Secure the Anchor Tubes to the Chassis from the top side with two (2) BP screws:
Fit one of the Anti-Roll Bar Brackets to this location on the Rear Axle, capturing the Anti-Roll Bar in between, and secure it into place with two (2) GM screws:
