One might open this thread and think to themselves. So what is the question or concern?

Any one who has installed the H and R rear bar would understand at once.

In my experience, H&R rear sway bar with stock end links, 1) the bar is too close to the half shaft if the suspension gets unsprung, 2) the loosest setting can not be set with the stock end link, 3) the rear end felt very squirrelly with the stock end link.

Actually they may not (though you are right, they should). Unsprung the end link/sway bar almost hit the half shaft ... super close ... lots of folks aren't going to realize that, under momentum, everything moves around and those components will over extend (from static unsprung one sees).

It should be upgraded, as you show. Foolish not to, IMO. The nylon washers are a good solution. In my case we machined metal spacers.
