So i added the ZQ8 suspension to my 00 S10.. The ZQ8 package came out of a 98 sonoma. If i hit a good size dip i get a clunk.. And while i was underneath changing the oil yesterday i saw where it was contacting the frame. Ill get a pic up of it.. Why would the ZQ8 sway bar hit the frame? I was thinking of possibly spacing it but wasnt sure yet. what do you think?

No it's not upside down. I know that cuz when I first installed it it was upside down. But I flipped it already

You want the ends where the links attach level at ride height.
I installed 2" belltech springs in my 95. 2" shorter links were just right.

I'll have to check that out. Makes sense. I might have to cut them down and get shorter bolts. Unless they sell the right sway links. Cuz it's just stock zq8 springs and sway

So did you fix your clunk?
No not fixed yet but I'm guessing that's the issue. Unless someone chimes in and says yes there are different part #'s for zq8 and non zq8 trucks. Saturday I will be tackling this. Either cutting the sleeve or buying a shorter link and giving it a try.

Is it contacting on both driver's and passenger's side? If it's only hitting on one side try loosening up the frame mounts and tapping the bar over with a hammer. The only thing centering it is the end links so sometimes it can take a while to find center on its own.

It hits the passenger side harder than the driver side. They both hit but according to thearks on the frame.
