Sway Bar Control

After all bars and chains are connected and I place my sway bar in place, do I tighten the adjustment to the max or leave a little slack. thks. Never used a sway bar before.

If you have the friction sway bar, tighten it as tight as you can by hand. Got a picture or brand?

Yes, hand tighten firmly. It's also helpful to loosen it up when you get to the campground, or are maneuvering in tight spaces. My dealer mechanic told me to tighten until the end of the bolt the handle is connected to is almost flush with the end of the backing nut, if that makes sense.
